Can someone tell me why baitcasting and Multiplier reels are mounted on the top .....and also can these reels be used with spinning rods?

The difference between a Spinning reel and a Baitcasting reel is : the reel. In a baitcasting reel the spool revolves while casting but in a sppinng reel the spool is stationary and the line is pulled out by the momentum of the cast.
In a spinning reel the bail arm when dropped will start the spool to spin.
The difference in the rod is the reel seat and grip. For spinning the rod is designed for a fixed spool setting. You might want to buy a conventional rod and add a baitcaster to that. I not sure of the result of a baitcasting reel on a spinning rod.
Experts any comments?

OK. A baitcasting reel sits on top of the rod because the spool revolves in order to give out line and this has to be controlled with the angler's thumb in order to prevent overruns.
Generally, rods for lure fishing with a baitcaster/multiplier reel are shorter than spinning rods, have a trigger grip reel seat and have more guides so that the line doesn't cross the blank when fighting a fish.
I supose you could use a spinning rod with a baitcasting reel in the same way that you could use a spinning reel on a fly rod but it's not going to be a balanced outfit and it's not going to be much fun to use.
