just clarify, to place parts on the bottom of the board i just mirror the pcb board and start placing components? hitting the mirror button actually flips to the bottom side and not just flip the parts on the top?

just mirror the component and it will change the layer to  the opposite side.
-> e.g  from top to bottom, or from bottom to top.
Yes, just check it. B-)

An easy way to switch layers in Eagle is to use the middle mouse button while you are placing it. Should automatically mirror it and turn the pads/throughholes blue etc.
