Actually, I think you are thinking of the alternate shells rule in IA1 about not being able to move and fire the AT shell.
In the vanquisher entry, it doesn't say anything about not being able to move and fire, and lists the "normal" vanquisher cannon shot as a ordnance blast weapon. If you are using the alternate shell rules on a "normal" leman russ, you can't move and shoot the anti-tank round, but there isn't anything in the Vanquisher rules that state this.
In regard to the vanquisher shell vs monolith question, I have always taken that the vanquisher AT shell is an ordnance weapon so would get to roll 2 and take the highest when it penetrates. However, given how bit the monolith is, I always opt to just fire the normal battlecannon since it has a a better chance overall to get a hit when you consider how big the monolith is--plus even if you don't get a center hole hit on the monolith, you might still deviate onto some annoying necrons.
