If you don't trust a pressure bleeder than you can complete the fluid change with the pressure bleeder and have someone pump the pedal for you so you can conventionally check it and make make sure it is ok. Another big plus with a pressure bleeder is the fact that they hold at least 2 quarts of fluid which makes sure the reservoir stays full.
Where can you buy that?

I already have a vacuum bleeder so dont wanna go out and blow more money but if it is better may have to invest.

Even though the fluid filter is so impermeable, if you vacuum very slowly with nipple loosened just enough for fluid to flow and keep fluid topped everything will be fine.

elp_jc, not sure what you meant by when you said "the line has air in it anyway"?

Indeed . That's all you need. All the other options are in case you screw the job up, but with our input, it shouldn't happen .

To use the bleeder's valve as a substitute for the nipple valve ; it's not designed for that. But maybe I understood you wrong too . Take care.
