This might actually have some medical applications in bonesetting (much as, if you think of it, a blood bender might be able to save someone with a severed artery by keeping the blood inside). But, again, like bloodbending, it would likey mostly have a very dark side, letting the bender snap bones at will or move them like a puppet.
I don't think this can actually happen. Going from no seismic sense to the level of being able to sense the bones of the enemies will probably take years, unless Bolin had some talents, which I really doubt. He had been earthbending for years, so if he was actually a prodigy, he should be better than this.
As for the "dark" bending, a way I can see using firebending is taking away the heat from someone, like how Ozai redirect the heat of the volcano. Though that wouldn't be very practical, except for defeating someone without causing damages to them.
Oh don'tn get me wrong, I agree that, even if such a power existed, the odds of Bolin having it would be pretty remote. I was spinballing, goggy asked if there could be any more refined forms of earthbending, and bone bending was the best I could come up with. I then simply speculated on how interesting it could be if Bolin did find out he had it.

Who says "dark" bending only has to take one form. The mindbending we saw was also pretty dark in its appication. As I said above a bloodbender could probably stop someone bleeding out, but he could also probably cause every last drop of you blood to burst out of your veins, or all the moisture in your body to go into your lungs and literally drown you on dry land. Thanks to the Noatak training montage, we have already seen that somehow, a skilled bloodbender can cause animals (and presumaby people) to defy gravity and levitate. Seeing that, I would not put much of ANYTHING in the realm of "impossible" That's one of the things about "darkenss"and "evil" by definition, it's forms are numberless.
