I haven't tried the Orlik, but the name makes me think it's a flake. If that's the case, you'll need to either rub it out before packing your pipe, cut it up as some here do, or fold it and pack. How you approach it is up to, and different methods will yield different experiences. If you don't rub a flake out much, it will burn slower, but it may require multiple relights.
As for the Nightcap. . . If you're new to smoking in general, you may want to start with a half-bowl or so. Nightcap contains a bit of perique, which is high in nicotine. So a full bowl may give you more of a nic hit than you like. It would probably be good, at the very beginning, to not try this on an empty stomach, but that may be overly cautious.
