2-3" copper nails are best to secure the tiles. They install same as slate with afew other quirks to pay attention to. Mortar or diamond bits work well for drilling holes.

spanish roof tiles

sounds like mission tile."a two piece cap and a pan". S tile is a little easier as it dosent require battens. a field repair is done by elevating the tiles above with a wooden wedge and tapping down a copper slaters nail about 13/4" with a flat bar and a skilfull hand. If your very new at this you may break more than you fix.
