Welcome to HBT. You would want to add the dme to your boil. I would substitute the amount of the sugar that the recipe calls for or more for the dme.

Wait thats confusing amount of sugar = the amount of dme...You could also add more dme if you want too.

1 lb of extract will add almost 1 percent ABV to 5 gallons of beer. Don't forget though that it will change the hop:malt profile too. You might want to throw in a few extra hops to compensate.

As to when: assuming you are doing a 1 hour boil; add it in the last 15 mins or so.



EDIT: also, don't people normally add fruit to the secondary, not the primary? I don't make fruit beer though, so don't ask me.
