Setting up solo mining just targeting USB erupters? PC/Mac?

I am having trouble trying to get solo mining started on either my PC or Mac. I have a PC set up that is using three 7950s that are mining Litecoins. I'd like to have my 2 USB erupters solo mining Bitcoins for fun on the same system. I have the drivers installed for the USB miners and my system recognizes them.
I am starting Bitcoin-QT as -server
My bitcoin.conf looks like this: listen=1 server=1 rpcuser=user rpcpassword=pass
I set up a BFG .bat like this: bfgminer.exe -o 127.0.0.1:8332 -O -u user -p pass
When I launch that, BFG just crashes. I have also tried it with CGminer and that crashes also. I'd like to keep CGminer on the cards Litecoin mining and use BFG for the USB miners.
How do I get BFG to work just with the USBs? Also, do I need to input a Bitcoin address somewhere so if I did solve something I get the payout?
Sometimes, I do more work on my Mac and am also trying to set up the USBs to mine on a Mac using Diablo miner. Will that work the same way as the PC setup once we get it figured out?
Thanks for any help.

I'm completely new to Bitcoin, so my understanding of mining is still improving. I downloaded BFGMiner, and now I would like to perform some solo mining. (I would rather have it use my GPU, but if a CPU is noticeably easier than I'll go that route first.) MinePeon is an arm mining platform for the earlier generation of bitcoin miners (ASIC & FPGA) that interfaced with a computer via USB. It ran on the Raspberry PI 1 & 2 and there was even a version or two for the Beagle Bone Black making it a very cheap and efficient alternative to running a full PC. Bitcoin mining hardware handles the actual Bitcoin mining process, but: Bitcoin mining software is equally as important. If you are a solo miner: the mining software connects your Bitcoin miner to the blockchain. If you mine with a pool: the software will connect you to your mining pool. SOLO MINING: BFGMiner supports solo mining with any GBT-compatible bitcoin node (such as: bitcoind). To use this mode, you need to specify the URL of your bitcoind node: using the usual pool options (--url, --userpass, etc), and the --coinbase-addr: option to specify the Bitcoin address you wish to receive the block rewards: mined. The are 2 protocols this software supported with : stratum mining and getwork mining. Both pool and solo mining can be executed on the software. Graphical illustration and can be set up easily with your miner are the features that is very important on this software. Mac Operating System : Bitcoin Mining Software. RPC Miner
