If a recipe calls for baking soda, it usually has an acid along with it, such as buttermilk or vinegar or cream of tartar or sour cream. If you totally omit the baking soda, and have an acid, you will not get the desired result in your recipe.

I believe that self rising flour contains baking powder only. It should substitute nicely for the same volume of regular flour and baking powder.

Measure the flour the same. Just omit the baking soda and baking powder.

It is fine to use that. The only difference in self rising flour and all purpose is that self rising flour has salt and baking power added to it. It is about 1/2 tsp each for every cup in the bag. Hope that helps.

Self rising already has the baking powder and salt in it, so just leave those out when using this flour.

Yes certainly. You also need Strong Plain Flour which is specially for breadmaking. It contains a lot more gluten.
