No the alcohol will not damage your board. You're suppose to clean your board everytime you stick something to it whether it be a stomp pad or a sticker.
I have those exact same studs on my board and there is no "best" way to arrange them. Just find a configuration that you like and that works with your boot. When I arranged mine I placed my boot on the board where I would normally step when getting off the lift. That will show you how much room you have to play with. There is no point in putting a spike where you normally don't stand. I did space mine out instead of clustering them together. My train of thought on this was to try and cover as much area as possible that my boot covers while still maintaining the effectivness of the stud.
Just be sure that when you have settled on a configuration you are sure that is the way you want it. Those studs stick to your board like concrete and are damn near impossible to remove.
