If you buy your plugs at a parts store, buy about a foot of hose to fit over the top ends of the plug. The counterman can help you with this. You use the rubber hose over the end of the plug, it will help you when inserting and starting the plug. On a Honda, the plug sits in the bottom of a deep hole.
You can buy a spark plug starting tool instead, but the hose is cheaper. Using a tool or hose decreases the chances of buggering up the tip of the plug when you go to put it in. Another trick I have used is to put a piece of paper towel over the opening of the spark plug socket, then insert the plug into the socket. The paper will hold the plug in the socket. Then with a 6" extension on the socket, it is easy to control the placement of the plug and get it started properly.
As for torquing down the plug, I am getting away from that myself. Run the plug down finger tight, or hand tight in this case. Use your hand only on the socket extension, kind of like a screwdriver until you cant turn it any further. Then put on your ratchet handle or flex handle. Now turn the plug through a specified angle. For plugs without a gasket (tapered seat), turn 1/8th turn (45°). If it has a gasket, then 3/4th turn (270°). If you use a ratchet, turn the handle backwards until it is either parallel or perpendicular to the engine before turning. It gives you a more accurate reference for the angle.
