    My translation is "How would I go about doing it?"

    I would get a loooper. I suggest the cute little one.

    I take it you're rather young and have limited if any experience with electronics. For someone like yourself, I would have it modded by a professional.

    Anyone who can do pedal repairs or modifications should be able to do this. I know plenty of people in the states, but I'm unfamiliar with electronic whiz'es in the UK.

    Did what in school? Doubt it was a true bypass modification.

    Did you learn to solder in school?

    It's not really hard to do. If you know how to solder. There are plenty of schematics, you need a 3pdt switch and some wire.

    Now that I know that, I'd say it's safe to do. Search diystompboxes.com for schematics, I don't have any readily available.
