No it isn't too late.
Next part of your question is subjective.(there's no `right` answer,only personal prefference)
Some use cubes,some use chips,some use spirals,some use old whisky barrels.
The spirals seem to work faster than the cubes from what i've read.
You will have to do some research/reading upon how quickly each type of oak adds flavor to the beer.If you `over-oak` it will take many months for the flavor to blend/mellow out.
Many people take small taste samples every few days to prevent over oaking & rack it off of the oak when it hits their desired flavor profile.
Hope this helps.
