Yes research is fun! mfdrookie516 gave me good ideas when I needed it too! I'm new to plants myself but so far, my swords, java fern, and anubias has been doing well in my tank. All green and I hardly ever have to prune off dead leaves. I'm using just standard gravel, some root tabs, and the occasional dose of ferts. But my tank is pretty small (12g) and with yours being a larger sized tank and with those nice pieces of DW, you definitely have a lot to play with!
It's just me, but I would definitely dress up some of that DW with some Anubias Nana and Java Fern. Something like this photo (not mine btw):
Or like this with the Java Fern:
With some swords in the background.
Google image some ideas and perhaps you'll get more inspiration.
Your stocking sounds nice. Down the road, I'd throw in some Otos to help with Algae. And once your tank is fully established, I would consider some center piece fish such as German Blue Rams or apistos as the icing on the cake. I'm just biased when it comes to Rams... they're just so nice to look at...LOL
