i assume wood stairs and decking - if so then mounting 3/4 treated plyood to the underside of these features should be straight forward.
first: all wood surfaces that you apply should have the ability to drain well. in the case of the deck, do this by canting the surface to the outside edge. under the stairs is self draining.
second the new wood should be lag secrwed to the supports. i'd use 1/4 (for the stairs) - 5/16 (for the "roof") galv. lag screws about 2-3" long. drill pilot holes smaller then the pitch diameter of the screw. ex: 1/4 screw, drill pilot at 1/8". use washers on the surface of the wood. space them every 18 - 24" along the 16" on center joists.
then you can mount holds with tee nuts as on any wall.
