I'm no expert, and I definitely recommend you picking up some kinda puppy program. I was in your shoes a few months ago and wish I would have.

Don't worry so much about steadiness now that will come later. The anticipation to get to the bumper is so high she's not thinking about bring it back to you cause your just gonna take it and make her wait to play again lol. You want to find a hallway or somewhere the only option is to run back towards you. Get real excited when she brings one back and make the reward for bringing bumpers back another throw. Throw it immediately when she brings it back. Let her get real excited and break to go get it. Keep it short, 3-4 throws, then end the game at the peak of the excitement to keep her wanting more.

Plenty of chew toys and band-aids. Puppy's have to learn how hard they can bite and what is/isn't acceptable. Often they learn this from their litter mates and mother, but if separated too early then you have to teach them. Allow mouthing but if she starts to bite too hard yelp or say oww in a loud voice. It may startle the pup and hopefully she will back off if she doesn't just ignore her, stand up, walk away, ect so she gets the idea that you won't play if she's gonna bite. It's how she'll grow to understand her bite strength. In general just try to avoid the situation if possible put a toy in her mouth if she starts trying to nip.
