.bva, .bvh work but it will be easyer to use .fbx.

You can export your model to Motion Builder with the fbx plug-in.
Load your mocap in Motion Builder , map the Motion Builder actor to fit your exported model and rexport it in .fbx after baking the motion (very simple just read the manual or tutorials).
Then load your .lws in LightWave Layout witn your previous riged model and use the "merge with fbx".
The only thing you need is Motion Builder, or ask your mocap studio to do this.
