    I'd like to put a push-pull knob in my j-bass to be able to play with the pickups in series too
    Do I need a particular type of push-pull knob? which one do you recommend?

    You need a DPDT, which they almost all are. There are dozens of schematics avaiable for this mod on the forum. The pot part should match the stock one, usually 250k log but sometimes 500k and/or linear depending on the pickups used.
    Finally, you can't do series/parallel with active pickups, typically EMGs.

    I have a passive MIM jazz bass, but I don't know if the pots are 250k or 500k

    Most likely 250k then. Just take a look at them.
