Yea, I think with that super high mash temp, in combo with high gravity, you may be done BUT I would say definitely try the warming + shaking + little sugar + nutrient (or boiled yeast) and see if you can't get it into the twenties. For this beer, I'd say you want to see identical FG readings a WEEK apart after that before you bottle.

What kind of sugar do I add and do I need to boil it into a simple syrup?

Sorry to distract with the refractoneter inquiry. I wanted to eliminate that as a possibility. The boiling is just to sanitize, so however much it takes to dissolve the sugar. Because you are adding yeast nurturance table sugar would be okay, however corn sugar or corn syrup would be raiser for the yeast to digest.
