I found a guide outlining how to use the lestovka to replace the Horologion at this link: https://orthochristian.com/122042.html

My main question is how do you not end up only going through half the prayer rope at one point when using it like that?

Perhaps it would be useful to consult your priest/spiritual father about the details of your prayer rule. Also, it seems to me that what is important is the prayer itself, not the prayer rope and whether you go through half of it or more or less; it is, after all, primarily a counting device.

The Lestovka has a marker at the 12th, 50th, and 83rd steps. you just go around the desired amount of times for the service, then stop. If it tells you to do 150 bows, go around one and a half times.
