frogs are carnivorous, tadpoles are vegetarians. pothos/ivy, creeping fig, most of the tropical plants at home depot are ok for terrariums. you can just use 'normal' compost too if no leaves. some people have a leaf pile for their gardens. some nurseries will have different stuff than Home Depot. bark nuggets are good in the mix too. put some of the river rock in dirt along shoreline to minimize the dirt in the water.

are you going to have a divider to keep land/water separate? keeps water cleaner and you use less water too. I would not use sand in the water. the river rock are good. a wet-vac is best way to change water and sand would not work. the water would need to be changed every other day or so if filtered or not.
don't use straight tap water either. age it for a day before use and add some water conditioner to get rid of chlorine or whatever else they add to the water. also don't wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap before cleaning tank/handling frogs. that crap is overrated anyway.
