    I'm going to use wood glue, but I don't see how I can use any kind of clamp to hold to the wall while the glue dries.

    What should I do, to keep it pressed against the wall until the glue dries?

    Thank you!

    The piece of wood trim that goes on the wall, but by the floor, to make it look nice.

    I always nail baseboard to the studs.

    Sure, you can try construction adhesive but I don't know why you're afraid of nailing. Wood glue is the wrong stuff. Can you put a couple sticks across from an opposite wall to hold it?

    Temporarily place something heavy close to it, then strut between that and what you're gluing. Baseboard is normally nailed on, but I've placed sections using latex caulking for glue and have never had a failure. In fact, caulking makes for a good glue in a lot of situations!
