Making a mooring..

My wife's family has a cabin on the water about 20 nm from our home port. It overlooks a bay that I think would maybe be a perfect spot for a permanent mooring (70' mostly flat bottom per the chart). Couple of questions..

1) Can you just drop a mooring? Are there usually local laws, licensing, permits etc? There are currently no other moorings in this bay that I know of.
2) What ground tackle would you use? I'm thinking 3 mushroom anchors, bottom part chain rode, double line up from that (ease of replacement mostly). But I have no idea. Source of info?
3) Would it just be easier to hire some local to put it there, maybe a block of concrete or something?
