How did William the Conqueror develop feudalism in Europe?

Feudalism developed in Europe long before William the Conqueror. It started developing during the final days of the Roman Empire. William made a major change in England. In Europe one group reported to the next higher group, but was not involved in the group above that one. William changed Feudalism in England. The King was everyone's overlord. Thus, while a Lord of the Manor might report to a Duke, the Lord of the Manor was also under the King and the King outranked the Duke. If there was a disagreement between the Duke and the King, the Lord of the Manor was expected to side with the King.

How long did the invasion of the Normans go on?

It took only 16 days from the landing of Norman soldiers to the victory at the Battle of Hastings (14 October). William the Conqueror expected that to be the end of it, but Edgar Atheling was proclaimed king and heavy fighting continued for another 2 months before English forces collapsed and William the Conqueror was crowned king on Christmas Day. This still was not the end of it, and major outbreaks of resistance continued for another 5 years. This resistance had its back broken by the "harrying of the North", a campaign of genocide and destruction by William the Conqueror's forces. This answer assumes the question was about how long it took the Normans to gain control over England. If the question is actually about how long they controlled England for, the answer is that they never left. The seat of control of the Norman kingdom was moved to England, and eventually the original Norman part of the kingdom was lost, but the Norman state never relinquished control of England, it just very gradually became more English than Norman.
