Conjuring An Evolution To Serve You

Has anyone tried breeding the smartest nonhuman primates (chimps, bonobos?) for intelligence? If not, what could one expect to achieve by doing this for 10 generations? To what extent are the genes for intelligence additive? That is, if there are multiple distinct genes that increase intelligence via distinct mechanisms, does having all these genes give you the sum of the intelligence boosts of having these genes individually?
