Probably not good to cover it's mouth... but that's just me guessing. Regarding getting it to attach to the rock you want, mushrooms are a lot like cats. It will do what it wants, when it wants. And if you want it to move a certain place, it most likely won't.

Just sayin'... don't hold your breath that the thing will be where you want it in 2-3 days.

It has a better chance of staying put if you put it in a low water flow area. Another thing you can do is put it on the rubble inside of a bowl with some netting over it and leave it for a few days in the tank.

You can loosely band it to a rock with a rubberband. Just don't make it so tight that it causes the roo to split in half.

Take a needle and fishing line...pierce the base and tie it to a small piece of rubble. The fishing line seems to grow out in a couple weeks and the 'schroom' is attached. Mushrooms are WAY more resiliant than you think!!
