How do I make a character stay in the air or "attached" to an object that isn't on the ground? Also, how can I make a character lie down? Thanks.

You can use a ground plane or any object really that has proper collision built in (chairs, tables the blocks etc) and just click on the objects the box to allow character to stand on the object and click in the box on the object to float in the air

then stand the character on the object and move it upwards.

use an object that accepts a texture if you want the character to float in the air and not be seen to be standing on the object and then select the no image texture on the object after your satistfied with where he is etc to make the object invisible.

for lying down you need to search for the animations under
themes > pose >
there are some poses for lying in some different positions

hope that helps. (rather tired so my typing might not make much sense ..)
