when these plates move how does this shape the bottom of the ocean?

The movement of the plates essentially forms the topography of the ocean floor. Just like with continentnal plates that form, say the Sierra Mountains, the plate movement is resposonsible for the "lay of the land" at the ocean floor. The Marianas Trench is an extreme example of how subduction can effect the shape of the bottom of the ocean.
