For a wooden viv I would put the mat inside the tank but under the substrate. I think I use habistat mats (which haven't failed me yet) and habistat or microclimate thermostats are reliable.

UVB is beneficial but not necessary. If you don't have a UVB light you're right, you must supplement them well.
