i made some splits in a single 10 frame deep and added a new queen. i like to add another 10 frame deep but don't have a lot of drawn comb. in the new deep that i am going to add should i add a drawn frame in position 1 and 5-6 and 10 and the rest un drawn plastic foundation in the rest of the positions?

If you are using foundation, it doesn't matter. With bare frames put a foundation less frame between two foundation  frames.
I would put drawn comb in the middle. Bees seem to want to start there. my2 cents Smiley d2
