I'd like to drop objects and have them to position themselves automatically on an irreglar ground - I am sure there is a tool that would allow this but I can't find it. Anyone can help ?

Thank you in advance.

Set your ground as a collision object (properties panel/ dynamics tab). Make sure your ground mesh is fine enough so the ball can't get through. You will also have to add a gravity effector. to make your objects "drop".

Here is a tutorial on collision objects.
