[tlhIngan Hol] is this grammatically correct ?

It looks grammatically correct to me. However, I would also prefer to use {latlh}, although I think it would be clearer to attach it directly to nuvpu', rather than making a compound with a relative clause:

{pa' Qotbogh latlh nuvpu'vaD jatlh...}

You might also consider something like {lutlhejbogh nuvpu'vaD jatlh...}, but that might not make it clear that the others are also lying down.

It sound wrong, although I can't tell why. It's a good question.

I would wrap the "also" into a package of {latlh}:

{latlh pa' Qotbogh nuvpu'vaD jatlh...}
"He spoke to the other people standing there"
