Transferring Soft Coral !!!!!!!!

I have a 255 gallon marine water aquarium with artificial decoration. I would like to replace the decoration with soft corals which I can get from the red sea while diving there. After my dives, I have a 12 hour drive back to my house. How can I transfer the corals from the sea to my aquarium in my car?

1- How can I pull it out from the sea? Do I cut it or just pull it off the rock?

2- Do I put it in a bag and how?

3 - How much time can I keep it in the bag?

4 - How can I put it in the aquarium?

5 - Do I wash it or put it first in another aquarium?

6 - What are the characteristics of the water that I should put it in?
