Not a pro here but... It would require proper tuning by a technition experianced in nitrous oxide systems. I would suggest reading the book "sport compact nitrous tuning" Using a nitrous system that engages at WOT can help the turbo spool up faster eliminating the turbo's hesitation... hope this helps.

If your running extra fuel with the N2O then you should have no problems. But, I don't see any prob's with a little 35 (dry) shot though... the engine should handle it if used correctly. Your just using it to get going until the turbo kicks in right?

Sorry so late in replying, just saw this post... If you do it, use a wet shot and a 35 would be fine as long as you get no Det. you may have to pull some timing to achieve this, I'm not sure on a focus.. However, if you look at what NX sells, they sell a nitrous solenoid that responds to boost ( several actually), we set up another car this way ( a civic with a B18, turbo set-up ).. Anyway, the solenoid senses boost pressure and when the boost gets to 6-7 lbs. it shuts the nitrous off, so it helps eliminate lag and gets the car rolling faster..
In drag racing circles ( NOT on the street) they are even spraying the nitrous into the turbine wheel to help it spool up faster, crazy stuff..
I think you can get away with it, run good fuel and be careful, low boost only on the stock pistons. You may even run some race fuel as you are getting it set up as this will keep you out of detonation until you get it all dialed in..

Just out of curiosity, how many lbs of boost are you running? What can the Zetec hold on stock internals (boost wise)?
