While this will clearly work and there is nothing wrong with it,
it seems to me more direct and clearer to do
Transpose@{x,y} or even
MapThread[List, {x,y}]

One way to accomplish what you want would be to use pattern
matching as follows:
In[28]:= x = RandomReal[1, 10];
y = RandomReal[2, 10];
Sort[Transpose[{x, y}]] /. {a_?(.2 < # < .8 &), b_} :> {a, 0}
Out[30]= {{0.0761041, 1.91884}, {0.129938, 0.115834}, {0.304408,
0}, {0.439366, 0}, {0.505744, 0}, {0.58412, 0}, {0.616887,
0}, {0.672258, 0}, {0.808959, 0.600491}, {0.827083, 1.27203}}
Here, I sorted the x,y pairs simply to make it easy to see the
output has 0 for y whenever x is between the two specified values.
