Basically you could use managehooks to position the windows on
the workspaces/monitors you want them to be.

For switching to eclipse you could also reuse my module for
linking workspaces:

It allows the user to define a set of matching workspaces so that
when you jump to the first one, the other monitors are switched
to the corresponding workspaces.
