First of all welcome to the lightning network and keep asking excellent questions! the important information is within the result of the listfunds command. For example here: "channel_sat": 500000, "channel_total_sat": 500000, The channel_total_sat says that the capacity of your channel is 500k satoshi. Whereas the channel_sat says that you own 500k ...

Natively c-lightning does not support paying invoices to yourself. But I have provided a trick described in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dwl-0cY6KkU&t=1s: The trick is to create an invoice and then use getroute to find a route to some node and then go back (possible over another route with another getroute call). once you have such a ...

First of all, there are already scripts that automate this process. Check C-Otto's rebalance script, for example. Secondly, I wouldn't assume that finding a route via queryroute guarantees that the balances in the used channels could actually support your payment. I think it just means that the theoretical capacity in your nodes' view of the LN is ...

Can my LN channel for some amount "X" receive a LN payement larger than "X" No, you can only receive payments until the entire channel capacity ("X") has been pushed to you side of the channel. At that point, you will no longer have incoming capacity. ..or receive multiple small payments that exceed "X"? You could receive multiple payments that exceed "...

Not all implementations support multiple channels between two nodes. That is why I would advise against that practice. Also I do not really see an advantage of having two channels. We don't have Atomic multipath routing yet so in general it makes more sense to have larger channels. Only counter argument I see is that one channel can only have 483 htlcs ...
