I think there is a risk to your established queens by joining queenless swarms with them. I've had problems in the past myself from doing it, with my established queens becoming missing. I think it would be a better idea to box the swarms and let them become established first, then pinch the worst queens and do joins in late summer to give numbers for over winter... just a thought.
