What plants are those?

Top pic looks like Hygrophila Difformis, bottom pic I can't tell...

What is the challenge in planting them?

Perhaps you can use fine thread or fishing line at the surface of the tank as a "corral" to keep them in place (at one side/corner for instance). This should still allow light to pass through to other sections of the tank and keep curious pincers from carving up the greenery.

Awesome! If you ever have too many shrimp, let me know

I have Salvinia and it is so small and flat the fishing line does not always contain it. I usually just scoop it out.

Definitely rehoam. They need lots of vertical space and a 10g won't do it. Try to give it to a lfs for some store credit!
