after boiling the skull plate and removing the horns from the skull, what is used to adhere the horns back to the cleaned skull for mounting?

Then use epoxy. It won't shatter or disBOND like BONDo.

I have mounted a lot of blackbucks, not to mention all the other horned animals, and have NEVER had a problem with the bondo. I will ruff-up the inside of the horn first with a stout ruffer, then bondo. It is fast and works great. But, to each his own I guess. Sooner or later George, I'll get you to agree with me on something. Maybe.
