50% water change will knock half off those numbers, you need to get that Ammonia out now, or your just stressing out the fish, and there would be no reason to have them in there. With those numbers, I'd do a 75% WC tomorrow, and 50% every day until those numbers are gone. How long has the QT been up and running? Is it cycled? Or are we talking about just adding to many fish at one time to a tank?

You know that tanks take up to 6 weeks to cycle. Water from an established tank will not do anything, its not got enough bacteria in it to do anything for a new tank, but this is where we are. Just for future reference. You'll need to throw Ammo Lok in there or something, because your going to be changing alot of water in that thing on a daily basis in order to keep those numbers down. I'd just put the fish in the DT if its already cycled.

Well, just because Nitrates show up doesn't necessarily mean your cycle is almost over, it could still run another 2 weeks or so. You just never know, every tank and every cycle is going to be different. But all the numbers sound like your miving in the right direction.
