An agar deep is used to find out the gas requirements of an microbe. Does it thrive in oxygen? Or in oxygen lacking enviroments? After inoculating the microbe in an agar deep, look at the results. If it only grows on the surface, it means the microbe requires oxygen. But if it can also grow within the deep, below the surface, it shows the microbe is capable or surviving in low oxygen concentration. Lastly, if the microbe is found growing far away from the surface, it means that this microbe grows in anaerobic conditions Hope this helps. From, A student studying microbiology

Anarobes can be inoculated in an agar slant using an inoculating needle. The needle is able to put the anarobes deep inside the agar. The anarobes can then grow in the anarobic environment provided. The agar slant should then be refrigerated after suitable growth is achieved.

Because the peptone iron agar is used to detect ANAEROBIC bacteria. If you stab it deep into the agar you allow the bacteria to grow in the absence of oxygen. If you only inoculated the surface the bacteria wouldn't grow.
