I have a physical set Snorlax with the moves: Heavy Slam

                                                                                                   and Yawn, which I plan to replace.
    I don't have any normal moves, but I was hoping to provide him with moves of different types , and I want Seed-Bomb as the only Grass type move I have is on my Raichu(Grass-Knot), and it could help against Pokemon such as Tyranitar and Rhyperior.

However, Zen-Headbutt could protect him from Fighting types, though with his fairly low speed he could end up being KO'd anyways. Any other advice is fine, and thanks in advance. :)

Earthquake is already good enough against rock types. I'd go with curse.
Do you have any psychic types or moves on your team? Other from the Zen head-butt.
I'll suggest a snorlax moves set for you:
Snorlax @ Leftovers
Nature: Adamant / Brave
Ability: Thick fat
Evs: 252 attack / 128 hp / 128 sp.defence
-Double edge
-Earthquake / Gyro ball
I honesty don't like heavy slam the power for it can fluctuate and sometimes not work in your favour. Curse is your defence booster and gyro ball power upper make snorlax a bit more bulky. Double edge gives raw power and healed of with leftovers. crunch is for those pesky ghosts.
I have a Greninja with Extrasensory, but thats all. Nice moveset, and thanks alot. Still not completley sure, but I'll definitley consider.

Neither, in my opinion. Instead, you should use Ice Punch.

Earthquake, Ice Punch, and Crunch are all really good coverage moves when combined. You'll never be stuck in a situation where you have to use a not very effective move with the three of them together. Zen Headbutt and Seed Bomb's coverage is okay, but Ice Punch is so much better.

Genius! Thank you, I definitely see why Ice Punch is better. I'll just let Charizard and Greninja's Extrasensory take care of Fighting Types. :)

Out of the two, I prefer Zen Headbutt for Coverage for fighting types. My Snorlax Has Crunch, Return, Rest, and Belly drum.
