I found the best way to learn was in a hallway holding the walls until you get used to it. The problem many ppl do is that they don't lean far enough back and end up going faster and faster and lose all control.
here's a vid I made last year to show someone the foot placement.

Yea wheel walking is hard to learn, i personally learned on a 20 inch, make the seat very very high for just learning, then make sure your arms are straight out for balance not at your side. I personally liked grippy shoes, or a grippy wheel for wheel walking, take you anywhere from 5 days to a month i would guess, took me about 2 weeks, then my friend a month, just depending how much you practice on it.

I have found the solution to my ww delema! Wear Water shoes, they are so flexible that it's like normal walking!

If you're not sure what water shoes are here is a pic.

anything with a good flat tread on it would work pretty good, Converse style shoes are what a lot of freestyle riders wear so yes they'll be good for wheelwalking. Skate shoes work well too. I'm working on a few instructional type videos right now I'll try to do one for wheelwalking too.
