I used 4 oz cocoa nibs soaked in vodka as well, then added all of it to the secondary along with the beer and let it sit for a week before bottling. The chocolate aroma from the nibs is quite strong, which is what I wanted. I don't think it matters if you add the nibs to the primary or secondary. If I wasn't using a secondary, I would have just added the nibs to the primary and let it sit for a week before bottling.

Bourbon is fine, the vodka is usually suggested as it's relatively flavorless. Bourbon will of course impart some flavor, but the amount is so small you won't be able to take a sip and go "oh wow there's bourbon!"
