I'm trying to make a level, but I can't figure out how to just make things stick in mid-air.  Do they always need to be attached to something on the ground?
 
Also how do I make stuff rotate on its own.

You gotta use gears fool, they explain all this in the tutorial. 
 
Spend an hour listening to Stephen Fry, yo.

I'll have to go back and look. I swear I tried everything. I have a block of wood with like every nut and blot and add on attached to it.

i do not have lbp2 so there may be other options but in lbp1 you just use antimatter.  and to make things rotate use the bolts or motors, i suggest doing the tutorial for the game as that would tell you all of this and more.

Use anti-gravity tool and just stick it on the object you want to float and set dampening to 100% which will stop it from floating around when it gets bumped.

To be fair, I kinda find Fry annoying in this game. He's just too precious about it.  It was fun the first time around, but they shoulda got the other half of Fry and Laurie to do the sequel. It would only be fair.  
 
I'm pretty sure two bolts is enough to make immovable objects.
