Ok thanks a lot for the help guys. I guess the obvious benefit of screws (or even carriage bolts) over nails is that they won't let the two pieces of wood separate over time..? The only concern/question I have then is how many carriage bolts should I use?

If you sister with 2x8 - 2x6 I would go about every 24".

Yes glue the sisters. Construction or wood glue, depends on how fast you can work and which is closer.

Just wanted to poke in and say thanks guys for the help! I ended up using 3" deck screws spaced about every 12" w/ 2 rows on the 2x8 joists, and going in w/ the framing nailer in between the screws. I also used PL premium adhesive and it's very solid. I opted to not use carriage bolts because of the time (and some of the spots are hard to get to). I probably overdid it with the nails and screws, but it's very solid, and a few more screws/nails I figure couldn't hurt. I'll try to post up some pictures later. Thanks!
