"...can i buy proper thick acoustic curtains..."
from a studio perspective, in your intended use there is no such thing.
In terms of location, you have to work within what your room allows. But speakers couple to adjacent surfaces, be that walls or ceilings or whatever, changing the response of the cabinet.
In your case you have the wall behind both cabinets and a side wall near the left cabinet, a less than desirable situation. A mix position is best when it is bi-symmetric.
The speakers might do to be lifted up a bit too, to get them more at ear level.
In terms of how far from the walls is best, I'm sure that you only have X amount of room with which to work. Do what you can.
Trapping is a different issue. Most rooms benefit from trapping. Smaller rooms usually have more problems and could benefit from more trapping, but have less room for it. So again, you do what you can do within the parameters you are given.
The trick is to balance what you can spend, against what you can do, against what you can reasonably expect to get in the space, and try to come up with the best result. It is good that you care and want to try to get the best sound that you can get with what you have.
