    No clue what this plant is. But it has an unlimited amount of stems and new leafs growing, and depending on the type, can i separate it? Put it on driftwood? How do i go about separating?

    cryptocoryne, probably wendtii.
    low light and low maintenance. don't put it on driftwood because it's not adapted to grow on hard surfaces and will
    die(in fact, most aquarium plants will die if slapped on to a piece of rock or wood. only mosses, ferns and anubias grow on hard surfaces).
    you can separate it into little clumps by pulling gently after removing the pot and rockwool. after planting, many cryptocorynes will drop their existing leaves.
    this is known as crypt melt and is usually harmless. the plant will regrow leaves once it has adapted to the new water conditions.

    if you are going to swith substrate so soon you could juts as well keep it in a bucket. make sure
    to have a light source for the plants in the time before planting.
