I've worked out the annoying vibrating and rattling that I have been getting is the valve bouncing about inside the rim - anyone got a fix for this?

For the threaded valve-stems, there is usually a nut which holds the valve-stem perpendicular to the rim. On one of my bikes, I have tubes which don't have threaded stems - for these, I tried putting heat-shrink tubing around the base of the valve-stem, but it was quite fragile, and so I eventually used electrical tape.
