Engines are held into the vehicle with "motor mounts"... although they should probably be called "engine mounts". Motor mounts can go bad and the engine can move excessively. If a motor mount has failed, take it to just about any reputable mechanic and it can be replaced.

It's not necessary to run the engine. With #1 at TDC, you can set 1, 2, 5, and 7 intakes, and 1, 3, 4, and 8 exhausts. Rotate engine one revolution (#6 TDC) and set the rest. If it's a hydraulic cam, tighten the rocker nut until there is 0 up and down movement in the pushrod, then tighten an additional 1/2 turn. For solid cams, tighten rocker nut until specified backlash is achieved.
