Inserting Small bubble particle

I need some help with VOF modeling in fluent. We have a 2D Horizontal micro channel that is 5e-05 meters in diameter and 7.5e-04 in length and we have the primary stage set to water and the secondary stage set to a type of oil found in the fluent database. We first ran a simple flow problem with just water. We saved those results and used them when we initiated the Volume of Fluid.
Here are our paramters.
pressure based, 2D, absolute formulation, implicit formulation, unsteady time
Explicit VOf scheme, implicit body force with two phases.
Water-liquid, Gas-oil liquid
Left as is, we want to know if we should change this
Inlet velocity 0.001 m/s pressure is 0, should we change this?
Equations are flow and volume fraction
Pressure velocity coupling- simple
Momentum: first order upwind
Volume fraction: geo-reconstruct
We would also like to know what the benifit of Patch is, and if it is necessary in our case.
The main problem we're having is that the bubbles are the same diameter as the channel, we would like to know if there is any way we can control the amount of oil that goes into the channel so our oil droplet would be roughly 10 microns.
Also if there is a way to measure the forces acting on the bubble.
