i noticed that all my kits came with 4.5 oz of priming sugar my kit i bought for my hefeweisen came with 5oz... Will this cause any bombs? or just add a little more alcohol to the finished beer?

It will be fine, Hefes are typically a bit more carbonated than average. I used 6 ounces on a recent 5.5g batch.

Priming sugar doesn't really add a measurable amount of alcohol, so don't count on that. Enough for a tenth of a percentage ABV would probably cause bombs.
