the difference between the two are that self rising has yeast in it. so all you have to do is get some yeast and mix it with the flour.
You should use regular, all purpose flour. Self rising flour has leavener mixed in, so unless the receipe calls specifically for self rising, stick to good ole all purpose.
In place of self rising flour, all purpose flour with a teaspoon of baking powder can be used. The baking powder you use gives the rising effect you need while baking. this is because it is basic in nature.
