Sounds like you are off to a good start. Yes, place one of the lures in the hive. The scout bees from a local hive will check it out and hopefully think it is the place to take the swarm to for their next home.
Welcome, we all started new at one time or the other. You will learn as time goes by.

Also, the exterminator companies here are great for calling beekeepers when they are called for honeybee swarms. You might want to leave your name and phone number with a few of them.

PS, be ready for a few calls if you do. You will need to always have an empty hive at the ready.
