You need a license to produce title insurance, of course. Next, you need to find a company that is willing to either provide you with title searches, or buy into the records of another company, which can be very expensive.

Let's start with defining title COMPANY vs title AGENCY. A title company is the actual company underwriting and insuring the title policy. Title companies then have agents who sell and negotiate title products in their behalf (think of it as equal to Allstate (the company) having the local Allstate agent) At this point in time, most title companies are also in the business of selling title products directly and in competition with their agents. However, there are more direct title agencies to obtain title insurance services from at a local level than title companies. So, the answer is yes, title companies can also be SELLING title services and products in addition to underwriting and insuring title insurance policies.

Title insurance is a specialized type of insurance that is not generally sold by insurance agents. It is usually provided by an attorney and underwritten by a title insurance company who specializes in this type of insurance. The title insurance company relies on statements and work done by the attorney when he does the title search and he has some liability for his work. You can't just decide that you want a title insurance policy anytime. It is usually done when you purchase a piece of property. I suppose that if you wanted to pay for a new title search you may be able to buy a policy at a time other than at closing.
No. An abstract of title is more like a status report of who owns the property, any outstanding liens and encumbrances and any defects in the title. It is used by an attorney, title company and title insurance company to determine if it can/will certify the title and issue a title insurance policy.
