I've done it, but only when I absolutely can't get the guitar I want locally. I kind of like to make that connection with the instrument first.

If you wait for a holiday, Musician's Friend has some...

Sounds like you're looking for some jazz chords. We also tend to refer to those chords as altered and extended chords. Understanding chord theory would also be a plus in this endeavor.

Tony is right. There is a lot of tension on the bridge and neck of a 12-string guitar. Cheap ones will fail over time. That is guaranteed.
