Positioning the ESP-32 on top to dissipate heat is a good idea, as it will help to prevent thermal throttling and ensure the stability of the device.
In terms of mounting the module, using male headers on the module and low-profile female headers on the PC board is a common method and should work well. The 6mm clearance above the PC board will also help with heat dissipation.
It's also a good idea to include a heat sink on the ESP-32 module to further dissipate heat.
In addition, you may want to consider including a fan or other cooling solution, such as a heatsink, to ensure the ESP-32 stays within safe operating temperatures.
Finally, it's always a good idea to thoroughly test your design before releasing it to ensure it meets your requirements and functions as expected.
