We report flexible optomechanical manipulations by the help of surface and volumetric modes of the substrate. Optical binding effect can be sufficiently enhanced due to both surface plasmon-polariton and hyperbolic modes of the structure. Volumetric modes of the structure provide optical pulling force for inclined incident plane wave, while surface waves cause enhancement of the optical trapping force under Gaussian beam illumination. Moreover, antitrapping effect can occur for specific positions of the beam waist.
