Normally it goes under the siding. No point that I can think of in putting it on top.

Nails, normally.

When bent to fit and held in place by shingles or wood siding, flashing requires no fasteners.

It's on the outside of the shingles and doesn't sit correctly on the wood siding or asphalt shingles on the roof. I was thinking of maybe putting roof cement or liquid nails. What do you think?

I wouldn't trust adhesive for holding sheet metal unless it's specifically labled for that use. If it is, fine. If it's not, nails with neoprene washers, like they use for all-metal roofing.

It is improperly installed and glueing won't help. If you must do it that way put globs of roofing cement on to hold it for a while.
