For regular bread, yes, you will still need yeast. Self-rising flour has baking soda and baking powder in it, not yeast. It will rise by itself for biscuits or quick-breads, where you would normally use baking soda and baking powder.

But for a good, quick bread, mix 3 cups of the self-rising flour, 2 to 4 tablespoons of sugar and a bottle of beer or other carbonated beverage. Pour in a greased (or sprayed) loaf pan, pour a little melted butter over it, and bake at 350 for around an hour. MMMMMMMMMMM.

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