          May be I am not clear with your question.


          You want to apply any style to a paragraph, you can use grep function:


          app.findGrepPreferences = app.changeGrepPreferences = null;         
          app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = ".+";
          app.findGrepPreferences.appliedParagraphStyle = "FEBL1";    
          app.changeGrepPreferences.appliedParagraphStyle = "bullet list";    
          app.findGrepPreferences = app.changeGrepPreferences = null;  




          You want to add bullet list in your existing style "FEBL1", try the below code:


          var pstyles = app.activeDocument.paragraphStyles;  
          for(var i=0;i<pstyles.length;i++)  
              if(pstyles[i].name == "FEBL1")
                  pstyles[i].bulletsAndNumberingListType = ListType.BULLET_LIST;
