I'm planning on throwing in a little grip work, probably after my weekly deadlift session. I've heard static barbell holds are good, as is dangling from a pull up bar with a weight belt.

I shall do the barbell hold double overhand, but should I use chalk for grip work? Or will I train my grip best if I make it as difficult as possible by not using chalk?

And chalk for the hanging off the pull up bar or not?

Always use chalk imo - you'll be using chalk when you deadlift, so no point in failing holds due to sweat issues rather than your actual grip going.
