Where's the best place to level act 2, nightmare mercs? I've been doing it in nightmare cows, but that's a little slow... having to go through the hassle of getting wirt's leg everytime and all. He's level 48 right now.

Above CLvl25 you should be in the ALvl equivalent to you're CLvl.

Palace Cellar Level 3, Arcane Sanctuary and Canyon of the Magi are all ALvl48.

From L25 on, the penalty for being in a too high area isn't that big anymore.

If you merc does the kill, he gains triple XP. However, it's not worth to wait for him if you can kill monsters three times faster.

IMO it pays off most if you do nm Baal runs. At L48, he can wear Gaze, Gris armor with 3 IAS jewels and e.g. an ethereal Pierre Tombale Couant. That will be good enough. At L75 give him Reaper's Toll and he will be good enough for hell mode. That's what I'm doing with most of my mercs.
