The most noob friendly way is to use root browser and copy/paste the apk from sdcard to /data/app and set permissions to rw-r--r--. The way that will look is like an r. Top row is read and write, second row is read, and third row is read.

I've set permissions with root explorer in the past, no problems there. So just use .apk instead of Play Store? Will they get updated or do I manually have to update the apps?

I did it with an app and it worked great. Moved .apk from SD card to /data/app, changed permissions to rw--r--r--, and then installed the .apk. What about moving the ones in /system to /data? Problems?

Apps will update normally, whether they are installed in system, data, or SD card.
You can install with playstore as long as there is space available.
Installing apps from playstore will install in data not system

Some apps work better in one partition than another.

If you used the recommended gapps, system size should not be an issue
Any other apps should be installed on data or SD card

When you push an apk manually like this you don't need to install it. Push it there and fix permissions and either wait a minute for it to appear or reboot.
