I just do it if I am like bending a note for a long time, on the last bend or last few bends i'll throw in one...

use them on the ending root notes of the scales you are playing........obviously thats just one option

Yeah that really rocks, especially if you unbend the note afterwards with a tremolo, some tones lower!

You can also use a pinch-harmonic on the 4th-to-#4th bend or at the b3rd-to-2nd unbend (if you play in minor and if you have a tremolo)

Thats one way to do it, but its all a matter of how and what you really want to do in your solo. Mix it up and don't be held back by "rules."

If it sounds good go for it.

I just use them on notes that really need emphasis, but it's all based on personal preference.

That said, a really wicked bent pinch harmonic can sound amazing when placed right. Just listen to the solo in "Floods".
Get baked, study theory.

how do i bend a pinch harmonic... i thought i had to pick the note on the note which is a harmonic and than mute it

No.
Just after you pick the note with a downstroke, you turn your hand some degrees to the right, so that the thumb quickly contacts with the string.
After an hour of practise you'll get it right

on the fret or on above the pickups?


You'll pick above the pickups ofcourse!
You know what? It will be easier if you contact your thumb on the string from the beginning.
Remember: do it downstroke
