Vocoding is one thing you can do, you can also use distortion (which some people confuse with vocoding because they sound similar sometimes) or pretty much any other effect you can think of, I like to use flanging and delay on vocals personally, but I do also use Vocoding using NI Vokator. Also you can use one of Antares many programs, autotune being one of them, that make some very bizzare sounds at extreme settings.l Pitch shifting is another popular one.

how do you use flanging on a mic? through a computer system or like a pedal? how do they do it live?

It's not vocoding, look up Anteres auto tune, that's what those bands use live.

It's both, occasionally used together. I run stuff like this in my studio, since HGB and Daft Punk are two of my favorite bands.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

Best and cheapest way to do all of these effects is to put your mic through a laptop live.

You will be able to get VSTs that will let you vocode, autotune, and do anything you want really.

Judging by this, you'd probably want to start with some aspects of recording that are a little simpler than vocoding and vocal effects.

U can get a converter cable to change the microphone cable to a guitar cable and run it through guitar effect pedals. Quick and dirty and with some adjustment works quite well.

It's both PitchCorrection and Vocoding.
You do it with an audio interface and computer for studio use, and can sometimes setup for line use with this as well...

This should be in R&R and to answer most of your Qs including the VST one, read Tweaks Guide linked in my sig.

also look into the Voiceworks and Voiceworks Plus

you put a cat up next to the microphone, and then yell the lyrics, and ur voice goes through the cat's fur, and makes cool sounds. i've seen the future.

It's called Autotune. It's a basic effect that can be found in (almost) every recording program
