I've checked, and I don't think there is a way to have different infill amounts/percentages on different Z heights the way you can have different layer thicknesses.

Is this correct?

Use modifier objects.

Good idea.

I can get the modifier loaded, but is there a way to place it in relation to the main object? When I try moving it, it snaps back to some original spot.

You need to not have the exporting program center the part towards the 0,0 point when you export your object to the STL file. For example, in Solidworks, there's a checkbox like this: "Do not translate output data to positive space"

This makes sure that everything stays in the same space (ie, where YOU want them to) even when you export multiple different objects of different shape and size.

Slic3r uses this information to place the modifier objects in the correct place.
