Another piece to the grand puzzle.  At our Main site we have 2 3560-48TS switches that are to be stacked.  My very inferior understanding is that this will essentially make them act as one big switch.  How would I need to configure these to function properly.  They are one the same subnet and VLAN and one is directly connected to the core router

I think you mean "clustered". "Stacking" is what you do with a 3750 using the stackwise ports.

The end result is the same though. What appears to be a single switch with a bunch more ports.

You would configure it the same way you would configure a single switch.
1) Create the VLAN's that you want.
2) Assign the ports as members of the VLAN.
3) Create any VLAN interfaces if you want to route between VLANs (networks)

So I could easily use the config templates I have for the rest of my switches on both of these and then just link them together and call it done?

Yes. But you'll just have to substitute the correct interface numbers.
