Much has been said about keeping the light a few inches above the plant. This is impossible if you are starting starting a new plant with older plants.
Is the hight of the light the same for cfl (florescent) as well as Led?
Welcome. :) Yes, you want to keep any lights a few inches from the plant. Otherwise the plant blocks the light, and the lights burn the leaves.
