That's a great list of tutorials. I'd also recommend the two Inspired Character Setup books, the Art of Rigging and Inside Maya 5 which has some excellent rigging chapters.
When you ask about how to "link the bone into adding a NURBS object" are you refering to skinning a NURBS object to your joints? This works the same as with polygons: pick the object, pick the joints and head to Skin > Bind Skin > Smooth bind.

Or are you refering to parent an object to a secific joint...?
Ex: Select the ring (nurbs torus), shift select the joint > press P....
bye bye!

PS: If your character is a nurbs model, i suggest you to make a low poly model of it, then rigging and skinning it and make it the Wrap of your nurbs model...

I'd suggest not worrying about hair yet if you don't know how to rig a poly character. Learn the basics before you try to do it all.
