I would not recommend going solo, but rather work in conjunction with a mining pool. At which point the rate at which you obtain bit coins is dependent upon the size and capability of the pool you are in.

GPU is by far the leading method. This link and this link will give you a pretty good list of pools to choose from. I would say the popular ones should be considered reputable.

A very, very long time. Bitcoin mining is done primarily by ASICs design solely for mining bitcoins. You won't be able to profit from it by using traditional computer hardware including CPUs and GPUs.

Mining is just a pyramid scam. Those who get in early get rich if and only if they can find a sucker to purchase the coins from them.
