My basement is in the same configuration, it’s set into a hill and I’m surrounded by three walls of concrete. It’s nice in the summer because it stays cool but it also stays cool in the winter! I’ve been considering doing the same but I’ve been considering it for 20 years! I think you would be fine glueing the bottom plate, your not changing the structure at all so you don’t need to worry about it failing and your building collapsing. I would do as suggested, glue the plate down, cut the studs a little long and beat them in, it will never move. Concrete gets harder with age (I know there’s a joke in there somewhere but I’m new here and don’t want to push it!) it never stops curing.
