Deck and pergola

I want to add a 10 x 10ft. deck and pergola to our new pool. I have two questions. Should I set the 6 x 6in. posts into the concrete or on top of the footings? Can I use the concrete deck of the pool to put posts on?( I only want to dig two holes for footings)

Welcome to the forums! Your profile doesn't tell us where you are located, so the precise information you will have to get from your local building department.
No wood in concrete. Set the posts on formed footings with proper post bases. The concrete deck of the pool is only about 4" thick, so it will surely crack with any pressure. Here, again, proper footing, proper depth.
