Dunno bout crimp sizes sorry check diameter and buy according?
Regards method either crimp as norm or use the twist method.
This is a bit more trickier but only needs a crimp and 2 pairs of pliers , put crimp on as norm thread wire thru it and back thru as normal but instead crimping it with a tool squeeze flat maybe 2-3mm on each end of the crimp (enough for pliers to get a good grip) then get a pair of pliers on each end pointing oppposite directions and rotate them opposite to put a full twist or more in them. Its kinda hard to explain but simple to show
Easiest way is deffo crimp as norm but just pass wire back thru a extra time before crimping them shut.

Whatever you do give one a good destruction test Ti is strange stuff and stretches a fair old bit.

Looking at getting some single strand AFW Titanium Wire for lure fishing heard using double barrel crimps with the spro cup to cup crimping tool is the way to go if so in mm what size of double barrel crimps will I need for 50lb wire and 100lb wire and what are other people's views on the best ways to make up traces with this wire.
