Someone gave me some leftover RAM heatsinks. Does it make any difference where on the stick I attach it? Just one per stick, or more?

Place them on the sides with the chips on it.  Most RAM has chips on both sides.

You can use as many as you need to get full coverage of the RAM chips on the module.
