How does one go about doing a bleach effect on different color garmets? Is it possible with a standard screen printing set-up?

The bleach look is generally done with a non-pigmented discharge. You can do it with a standard screen printing set-up, but there are several considerations; water resistant emulsions, drying, ventilation. Look into discharge printing and see if you have the capabilities.

You say you learned the hard way, how so? Did you end up with health problems? I don't really have the best ventilation at my current set-up and I'm a little worried about it.

Yes, you will get health prolems if you do not have ventilation. IMO you should put in a good extractor fan.
