Your unlikely to see any improvements as most online games don't max out your 256K connection anyway. You will only get benefits if you are hosting games or have a gameserver yourself which requires a lot more upload bandwidth.

As most surfing requires more download than up, going for a 2Mb line will speed that aspect up.

You can do this yourself, there is some linux stuff available or you will need a high end and expensive router
The safest option would be to go with one of the ISP that support 'ADSL Bonding' such as Nildram, I note that the costs is more than 2 seperate lines.

There is a guy here that has done that http://www.freestuffjunction.co.uk/bondedadsl.shtml
