If H+(aq) is added in the half equation, how do you know where to put it for the cell diagram?

H+ would be on whichever side of the redox reaction it is on. The redox reaction is the overall reaction found when you combine both half reactions.

If you only added it to balance your half reactions, I'm not sure you need it to create your cell diagram. I am not totally sure, but I think you can just create your cell diagram with the substances that are being directly oxidized and reduced.
