Help with background characters

So, I know how to place out the characters. BUT the problem is that I want them to already be at their places and, if possible, having them do what they do (talk etc) when the scene “opens” or what you call it.
Now when I get to the new scene/background they all pop up 1 by 1 after another and it takes time until they are all in places and talk etc.

Is there some way/command to make it all be smooth (that they are already in their places etc so that the scene can start at once?

Do it all on one line.
Instead of @ use &

&Ken is spot (numbers) in zone (whatever zone they are in) AND Ken faces left AND Ken is idle_awkward AND Amber is spot (numbers) AND Amber faces right AND Amber is idle_happy.

By replacing @ with & it makes them already on scene
