I am in the process of making a Belgian strong, and I added 12oz of belgian candi solution to my ferment which is on the tail end of vigorous fermentation. Should I swirl it to get into solution, or not really worry about it?

A gentile swirl won't hurt. Don't shake and cause bubbles (aeration). You could also wait a few days then rack. This will mix things up...

When that has happened to me I took a wine degasser and stirred the bottom of the carboy up. The one I have is a long stainless steel rod with "wings" as paddles that kick out due to the spinning. I did it on a belgian with dark candy syrup and on a stout with maple syrup.

Least of my worries now. My beer has stopped fermenting at 1.048!

now you definitely want to do a gentle swirl for both the sugar and the stall

I roused pretty well, but no change. Do I need something drastic like the wine degasser prevoiusly mentioned?

Time to make a new starter I think. Heating the fermentor up may help but I think you might want to get a new starter ready then rack off the old yeast. Your other option is to go with wyeast 3711 but it might take the beer too dry.
