How to handle and work with bulk items in the system?

Not enough detail in your question, or your detail (which repeats the question). What do you mean by: "bulk items" and what do you mean by "handle". Give an example, tell us why you want these items handled differently than stockable products or services or consumables and tell us what kind of behavior you want for these items.

What I need to know is how to handle an item that is going to be specified in a bom list. But this item will perhaps not be a stock item and will never be.. lets say it's an instruction that will be printed and packed.. but don't want to need to put in_stock first to be able to have it in the bom..

Other thing I want to have an item with a bom where there are 2x2 items that are bluk items, they are already picked from stock to make it easy, but still I need to have them and see them in the bom and I need to know how meny of them I need to mount on the product..

This kind of 'product' could be a consumable - OpenERP won't manage stock, won't try to order, will just count the number of items used.

Try it.

Ok. But if you still want to keep track of the stock lets say you have a bunch of them in stock that you will use to refill the bulk box for ex. Or you pick directly from stock.?

Yes - you can do this. OpenERP will count what you use, it will go negative if you don't keep your stock levels up to date, but you can update stock levels as you need.
