i assume you mean to add 4 SFP in a empty port in the switch is correct ?
No reboot is necessary, just the Port POD must be licensed, if the port is not licensed then not become as active.
whit a command "licenseshow" can you check all current license.

The license here are only for Native Zoning and Webtools.
in order to use more as 8 Port, you need a POD License, whit other word, you can insert the SFP but the port don't become as active and are uselessly.
If you want to build both switch in the same Fabric you need a Fabric License.

You need to purchase a License from reseller, and add the license stringh in the switch trough a Webtolls in the License Card or from Command Line whit the command "licenseadd"
The reseller need to place a order by Brocade the Switch WWN number and Serial Number.
Not other Document is available, add a license it is very simple
about the SFP you need just to insert in the slot and not more.
