On of my harlequins has been rubbing its belly up against the bottom of an Anubis leave. And rubbing on the top of it. Is this a sign he/she is getting ready to lay eggs? Or is it like "practice" for them?

I'll try getting a Better picture

Bottom right fish is the one

That is breeding behavior. It's supposed to be hard to get them to breed...
The female is the one rubbing it's belly on the leaf.

What should I do to hatch the eggs? I have a spare 10 gallon with everything necessary for setup and I have a cycled media piece in my 29 that fits into my 10 gallon filter (hob)

Quite a few of us here on the forums have seen this behavior at times but never eggs or fry. We usually just assume practice runs, mine did a briefly for a few days and I never saw any eggs.

She looks fat compared to others. And a male is now doing it with her

Well who knows, you may get lucky! Anubias is after all one of the best plants for breeding them, they prefer any broad leafed plant such as anubias and swords. Just watch closely for eggs and be prepared if you see them.
