so they should both be placed toward the bottom, facing slightly upward?

I'd recommend 4 MJ1200's. I have a 75 with only two and there isn't nearly enough movement. I'm gonna buy two more.

No, put them towards the top, high up, but not so high they could ever run out of the water (due to evaporation). Use the flow director piece to angle the flow at about a 30 degree angle. it should agitate the surface, and cause a good current.

I'd go with 4 MJ 1200's on a 75gal also.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.
