Sorry, read the kits instructions and got a little confused.
You don't want to risk aerating the beer, but you are probably going to have to do something like that to mix in the priming sugar.
I don't use a "secondary" very often but if you do, make sure you use a carboy, or something without the wide headspace of a bucket. Once fermentation ends, you want to prevent oxygen from contacting the beer as much as possible. Normally, you rack the beer into the bottling bucket only when you are going to bottle the beer
