I don't personally think its right to worship/praise a cross.. I understand the imagry behind it. But is that what it means by: "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below." ?

No, it does not mean it's wrong to have a cross. I've never heard of a person worshipping a cross; a cross, or a crucifix, remind us of what Jesus did for us and that His burden was greater than ours. Looking at a statue of a biblical happening helps us remember the Gospel just as looking at a photograph of a relative helps us remember that person.
Money, prestige, power, drugs, alcohol, sex and more can all be "idols" we worship and place before God. God actually commands the making of religous statuary in Ex. 25:18–20 and 1 Chr. 28:18–19 (gold cherubs in both) and Num. 21:8–9 (a bronze serpent).
