What do I do with the ‘bulbs’ that are growing in my Boston fern? It’s getting a little rootbound, so I would like to put it in a bigger container but I’m unsure what to do with the ‘bulbs’.

The "bulbs" are just the plant's way of storing extra water. Leave them attached to the plant when you repot it.
