Question Help a Vegetarian cook meat for Thanksgiving. Advice please :)

I bought a 6 lb. pre-cooked ham (from giant) and a Half of a Roasted Turkey and need help with the prep.

This is the shape of the ham.

I found a recipe on Rachel Ray that I want to use.
Brown-Sugar-Glazed Ham with Pineapple Recipe - Every Day with Rachael Ray

When it says put the ham face down, does that mean the round edge with the pink flesh showing or do I place it in the pan like in the picture?

Here's the turkey that I bought.
Trader Joe's
I know turkeys normally cook in their juices. Should I add some broth or something to the pan or over it so that it doesn't dry out? There are instructions for baking it but it doesn't include anything about this.

The side of the ham showing in the picture is the "face". That surface should be on the pan sou you can spread the glaze on the other surfaces.

The turkey is fully cooked so just needs to be heated. Follow the instructions on the package.
