I am getting ready to have two slabs poured and wondered if it is possible to set cracked tile and river stone to the slab along the edges as decoration. I appreciate any advice I could get.

Yes, it is possible and done often. Try to ensure whatever you embed in the fresh concrete has as much surface area (roughened surface) as possible. Portland cement concrete is like any other binder, the more it has to grab on to, the better it holds.
Concrete is good.
