I get my tank on Thursday so nothing is in it yet but the thing is it's a "birthday present" so I don't know what filtration I will have with it but that's not saying I can change out filters or stuff like that so is there any corals that don't need live rock to live

The live rock is an anchoring place for corals, they don't "need" it to live aside from the filtration involved. If your new tank doesn't have any then I would highly suggest buying at least 20 lbs of dry rock from bulk reef supply and then doing a fishless cycle from there. The engineer goby or snowflake eel you have your heart set on will need some live rock.

I understand completely I will have 1 or 2 engineer gobies of my own next month when my 40g is set up because I absolutely love eels

From everything I understand, yes they are. But they can eat small inverts so we will see about how they do. At the very worst I wont keep any shrimp and will have to refresh my cleanup crew every once in a while.
