For the hold I would just stick the item into his mouth and physically hold it shut. The moment he stops fighting immediately mark and reward. Then you slowly add time to him holding still. Then you add being able to take your hands away and him holding it himself. Then you add just saying hold and he bites down on the item without your help.

Break and down into steps. Mark and reward each step.
