I ordered the freestyle paks, and I though it would be fun to try and add things. Vanilla pods, fruit, citrus peels etc. Has anyone tried this?

You would have to add them to the keg. No way to take the pak out while brewing and add adjuncts to it.

My plan was to bottle my brew. Do I need to keg before bottling? Or is it possible to add adjunts to fermentation, then transfer to my bottles?

You brew in the keg, that's how the PicoBrew works. It's not possible to brew directly in a bottle. So you add any mash/boil adjuncts to the keg at the appropriate time during the brewing process, or fermentation adjuncts when throwing the yeast.
