Hob = stovetop, yes. Make your own preserved lemons! (it takes time though). I've never done my own Moroccan cooking, so cannot help further, but I was *this* close to taking a tagine back home from Morocco after eating amazing lamb and chicken dishes while I was there. I might go buy one anyway now.

My cookbook says a dutch oven suffices in place of a tagine, although I imagine the conical shape of the lid has a special effect. As for preserved lemons - yeah, I'd like to make my own, but it means waiting four to six weeks.

Hurting, you'll probably have to go to a middle eastern market for the lemons, though a grocery with an amazing olive/pickle section might carry them.

I cracked my Mum's terracotta casserole thing by using it on the hob, so I reckon it'd be unsafe for tagine use too. The conical lid keeps what's inside moist because it allows the condensation to run back down.
