Lighting Setup, will SB50 help?

I currently use for my portrait setup an SB27 mounted on SU4 on a tripod, built-in on-camera speedlight w/diffuser that came w/SU4 and a photoflood lamp. I have been using the SB27 off to one side (about 45 degrees from camera)and the photoflood about the same but a little closer to subject to the other side. I have tried using a small Photoflex reflector panel toward the back directly across from the SB27 setup to add a little backlighting/hairlight, but it doesn't have enough "oomph". While the photos have been pretty pleasing, I'd still like a little more illumination for hairlight, etc.

Can I use the SB50 as a wireless slave (somewhere behind the subject) in this setup? If so, can you tell me what I need to mount it to a tripod or lightstand? I'll have to order everything from B&H as they're not sold locally where I live.

Thanks so much!!
