You must install Glyph into your "RIFT Game" directory, or it will not find RIFT at all. To accomplish this, when Glyph brings up its installation dialog click "Change" next to the path. Scroll down past your local file system entries and browse from "My Computer". Select the path to the directory where your "rift.exe" resides. On my system this is "My Computer\drive_c (C)\Program Files\RIFT Game".
Once installed you can launch with your usual RIFT icon. You will see RIFT listed at the left as one of your games, but the first time you click on it there is a bit of latency before it populates the RIFT content into the center and right panes.

I've been running RIFT on version 10.2.0 of Crossover Games and I did the steps you outlined to change the installation path. Unfortunately, the installer crashes every time so I can't even get past that part. Any thoughts or ideas?
As for changing the installation path making the Glyph installer crash, I am not surprised. What I've done so far is let the Glyph installer go ahead and install itself where it wanted to. I've been very careful not to close Glyph or CrossOver ever since. So far this has worked.
I am worried about starting the whole thing up again if I ever have to close either. I have a bad feeling that when that happens, I will have to make an entirely new bottle for Glyph. I'm not sure how to do that. It's been ages since I've had to do something like that.
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
