You spend years practising and learning.

There seems to be many threads that answer your questions. Just yesterday someone asked about what scales work with metal. Just search.

Start phrasing them.

Classic metal solos use pentatonics and won't use arpeggios very often. Blues is very influential in classic metal, so bluesier phrasing is a must. It's distinguishable mostly by heavy distortion and for being a little more aggressive than regular blues.
I don't know much about modern metal, since I don't listen to it and I definitely won't play it.

Not really. Arpeggios are just the notes of a chord played sequentially instead of at the same time. So if you were to play a C major arpeggio you would play a C then an E then a G then a C and so on.

Also, in future, could you please use proper grammar and spelling when posting in MT. MT is a very different forum to the pit.

Of all the millions of answers I could attempt to give you, I'm going to pick one. Don't play useless notes. Let your music breath, listen to what you want to hear, and then try to play it. Don't just sweep dimished arpeggios because you can, sweep dimished arpeggios because you want to hear them.
