Should I move the ball back in my stance?

Your primary objective when playing a shot from a poor lie is to catch the ball as cleanly as possible, and moving the ball back in your stance is the best way to do just that.

What does moving the ball up in your stance do?

The farther back a ball is in your stance, the lower the ball flight, higher the spin, and more difficult it’ll be to square the face. As you move the ball more forward, it gives you more time to square the face (or even close it), comes off the face higher, and with less spin.

Why do I hit the ball better when it’s above my feet?

From this upright posture, the swing will be flatter or more around the body, like a baseball swing. That creates more hand and arm rotation through the shot, with the clubface closing at a faster rate on the downswing. So the tendency with the ball above your feet is to hit it to the left.
