With either the 7.1 or the 5.1.2 setup you only have 7 channels driven from the amp, and that means if you are adding 2 ceiling speakers or 2 upfiring speakers you need to drop 2 speakers from the 7.1 setup.
A traditional 5.1 setup with 2 Atmos speakers is likely the best way to go.
Your receiver will have a 'height' option for speaker outputs and that is what you will use for wiring the two new Atmos speakers whether they are ceiling mounts or upfiring.
