I was wondering how I could force my Nexus 7 to run Ubuntu touch in landscape and have side-stages. Could anyone help me with this?

Unfortunately not a very helpful answer, but:

if you want to change it simply by doing some configuration edits it won't be possible. Quite a bit is yet hard coded and therefore it is clearly not yet the right time to start on this level.

Quite a bit of work has to be done till there is a universal configuration to change the individual behaviour like roation or side-stage.

I would say keep listening the different channels, like irc, mailinglist or the wiki and you will see when it will be possible.

You can use this tutorial to enable side stage, but it's still in portrait. I haven't had time to play around with forcing landscape, yet.
