I've been doing this for a few days now, would it be a month before I can pick things fast without screw ups? Since I'm just starting out with the whole floating thing, even the first pentatonic riff in the stairway to heaven solo seems hard... >_> How long does it generally take?

what the heck do you mean by floating hand?

Well I personally don't bother because it doesn't make any difference; in fact I'd say it is worse because it will be harder to mute strings. At a guess though I'd say it will be a breakthrough skill, where it'll take a while but when you've cracked that it's easy from then on.

Muting is the same you just kinda lightly brush your hand over it. The reason I want to learn it is because my old way of picking is terrible, and I'd rather learn the right want now before it's too late to change...

It's not something that will come naturally I think, if you have troubles picking with a floating hand, you will just have to practice doing it. Some players have a floating hand (I believe for e.g. Al Di Meola), others rest their hand on the bridge. Neither is wrong or right, you just have to get comfortable to what you think is right for you.

It'll take as long as it takes and only time will tell how long that is so get practicing.

If it's only 1-2 years then you've got it easy; I changed my picking completely recently after playing for about 6 years and I've heard of much harder cases.

I'm the opposite, I usually play floating hand and only rest on the bridge when i have to palm mute.
