I am trying to decide if I should get a friend for when im alone or learning to do things. Do you think having a friend live with me might help?

No I don't your mummy or daddy should teach you a lot of things - how to be friendly to ppl & other dogs, how to go toilet outside, how to be a good puppy. Otherwise you could give any bad habits you may have to the new puppy. Also 2 puppies become very attatched to each other & it can be hard sometimes if they need to be alone.

No, generally two puppies end up creating more problems than they solve. They become overly attached to each other, such that they can end up ignoring human direction, or they just end up making a LOT of mischief together when left alone. Dogs can learn from each other, but only in the case of adult dog to puppy; hardly ever in the case of puppies learning from one another.

Bowzer is adorable. But I wouldn't get a friend. I have 3 dogs but each one was trained reliably before the next one entered the family.
