Conky currently for me is located underneathe my bottom panel. I would like to have it placed to the right of my screen but i can't figure out how to change some of the settings. Can anyone help me!?

Difficult to know in detail, without seeing your current .conkyrc file, but somewhere there should be a section like

# Text alignment, other possible values are commented
#alignment top_left
#alignment top_right
#alignment bottom_left
alignment bottom_right
#alignment none

# Gap between borders of screen and text
# same thing as passing -x at command line
gap_x 30
gap_y 50
which in this case means the window is bottom right (the uncommented line) and 30 pixels from the screen edge on the right (gap_x) and 50 pixels from the bottom (gap_y).

Play around with the figures until you get it how you want. You can start and stop conky to make the changes show most easily with the Alt+F2 run dialog and commands killall conky and conky.
