I'm no expert in the field, but I have learnt LOADS from this forum as well as from quite a few books and videos.
As to your questions, here are what you can do according to my view:
- how would I go about learning how to hypnotise myself/someone else?
I have not learnt how to self hypnotise yet, but a good practice is mention on a Dave Elman book Hypnotherapy as to how to do this.
Its getting yourself to close your eyes and relax all the mussels around those eyes, once they are completely relaxed, just "pretend" they are stuck and you cannot open them. Once you do this and practice this, you can in hypnotise yourself.
Note: there are many ways to self hypnotise, so you have to pick one that bests fits your needs.
As to how to hypnotise someone else, I would recommend you buy the book Reality is Plastic by Anthony Jacquin and also Deeper and Deeper, by Jon Chase. Very good on getting you going.
I would also recommend the Manchurian Approach DVD by Anthony Jacquin. This will really give you an incite on how it all works in practice.
- Is there any way I can learn online?
Check out Amazing free quick guide on Impromptu hypnosis.
- How long would it take to be able to hypnotise myself?
I guess this depends on whether you have got the right technique and the amount of time you put in.
I think some people can do really quickly and some take a really long time.
- How long would it take to be able to hypnotise others?
To be honest, once you have read the RIP book and seen the DVDs, you can hypnotise the next day. Stimulate your self confidence that you can, and you WILL be able to do it.
Best way to do it is by doing it and not to worry about it failing.
- Is it possible to hypnotise myself/others for the long term? (E.g. stop bad habits)
Yes. Best to study Hypnotherapy for this to get desired results I think.
Hope this helps.

You said it's possible to hypnotise someone for the long term and change there habits, but if that is possible it's surely possible to be able to control someone in the long term aswell? Which is kind of f***ed up to think about, is that correct though? Could you control someone for the long term?
What about food etc? Could you change what food people enjoy? Is it possible to spawn attraction? What about erase memories? Is that just in the films or can you make people forget large portions of there life?
EDIT: Could you please link me to the RIP books/dvds aswell?
A person has to:
1. Want to change.
2. Totally like the suggestion that you give them AND they Know that it will work for them.

Yep, certainly short term. I see no reason why this couldn't be done long term but I think the word "make" might be misleading. If it worked it would probably seem natural to the subject and they wouldn't feel like they were being made to do anything.
Probably (and yep). We have often given people amnesia for everything (in controlled environments) with some quite emotional responses. Temporary insanity seems perfectly possible and, again, I see no reason why this couldn't be done long term.
Attraction through hypnosis is only of a passing interest to me. Driving a subject insane is of more interest but I'm not prepared to share thoughts on how to do it on this forum - I just don't think it is the place for it.
Which is exactly my point! They must believe it will work.
