If your using the FMB, then there is a checkbox for the 'Player' in the object window on each of the 'Plane' tabs. If the checkbox is disabled/grayed out, that plane is not flyable by the Player in the game. If it is not disabled, you can check it, and that is the plane you will fly.

Also, I don't think the B-17 was available in the Pacific...

And, I don't think bombers dogfight.

Patgm193, you should find the information you're looking for in the Mission Builder Forum. There's a sticky thread titled "On-line Dogfight Aircraft List for AEP".

You add those planes to a dogfight map with the help of a text editor. When you fly the mission you'll have to select a flyable aircraft and hit the "Fly" button first before you can fly AI planes. Of course external views must be enabled as AI aircraft don't have a cockpit.
