I use semolina on the stone rather than corn meal since it doesn't burn as quickly. I use platesetter legs down with spacers on top and the pizza stone on top of the spacers. I have 2 peels - a wooden one for putting on the pizza and a metal one for removing it.
The most important thing is to allow the pizza stone to get hot before putting on the pizza.. It can take 20-30 minutes for it to fully heat up. I use an IR thermometer to measure the stone temperature.
