Pretty much the same way it is meant to be used on a Violin or other instrument. Just draw it along the strings you want to ring out.

Just messs about and get the feel for it. Use plenty of rosin (but remember to always clean your strings and pickups after playing). It's all about experimentation really, finding the sweet spots on the strings - it's like learning pinch harmonics.

not your guitar but maybe your strings. Find out what violin strings are made of and see if it's related to guitar any.

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

I've use a bow on my guitar for years. Just clean it well after each use and it'll last fine - take extra care cleaning if you have uncovered pickups though.

Good luck with it, and by the way, I love Sigur Ros too. 'Hoppipolla' is so beautiful.
