No you don't have to do a swap sync. All the different syncs types  
should work fine.

Bucardo only needs to be installed in one place, usually where ever  
the bucardo database resides. Only one Bucardo database is needed. It  
will talk to remote databases just fine as long as it has the correct  
user/password, etc setup in its db table.

I'm guessing what you man when you say crazy, is an endless loop of  
replication? For example, data from DB_A is replicated to DB_B, and in  
turn that same new data on DB_B gets re-replicated back to DB_A, and  
so on...

No it should never do this. Bucardo disables the triggers on table it  
is about to update data on. As a result, the destination tables will  
not report the new data as needing to be replicated.
