Terrain mapping - Y-shift? Collada?

Two brief questions regarding terrains in CityEngine!

1) I imported a terrain with the right projection, I'm sure. I played with the x-offset to get it aligned correctly (laterally) but....I see no y-direction offset. See image below--I need to move the image slightly in the y-direction. (for instance, the two yellow highlighted regions should match up)
I see some exciting tools to align shapes and graph networks to the terrain, but I need to get the x and y right first. Any advice would be appreciated!

2) Is there any way to import Collada files as terrain or development in this area in the future?
