You wouldn't need to trade them and it wouldn't break how non-bound BOFF's get trained. You could stick Borg/Holo/Android skill vendors at Memory Alpha, a Reman skill vendor at Starbase-39, a Breen skill vendor at DS-9 or Defera, etc.

They'd use basically the same UI that the other skill vendors do, with an expanded list of trainable skills and some bit of code that only accepts the right kind of BOFF.
Maybe as a stopgap.

What's really needed is something like WoW's enchantment window. You put your BOFF in it (and maybe some EC), the person selects the skill to be trained, you both hit accept, and its done. No trading needed.

Non-tradable BOFFs withstanding, there are so many other issues with trading that need to be fixed it's really not funny.
