A regular funnel is a pain. I didn't know canning funnels existed so I took apart an old Brita water filter. The inside of the Brita is a white plastic cylindrical piece,and the top has a large opening normally where you would poor water. It fits onto the carboy ok.

Just jerry rig a funnel out of anything and slide the whole leaf hops on into the carboys. I don't see the point about racking to secondary just to dry hop. Unless you rack your beer in a sealed off CO2 / nitrogen environment, you're likely doing more harm through oxidation than gaining anything by getting the beer off the trub. I dry hop in primary now and I've noticed a difference FWIW.

I prefer using while hops and i haven't had an
issue getting them in and out of the carboy neck. I put them in a large mesh bag sanatize a few marbles and throw them in the bag, then push the bag in.
