The needles on my eln745 wont stay threaded it seems the needles are hitting the lower looper mechanism.

Pull more thread through the needles before beginning to stitch. However, if you believe the needles are hitting, FIRST try new needles. If that doesn't help, then you need to take the machine for service.

Do I need to use a specific "foot" with twin needles? The one needle hits the foot I have

You need to use something like a zig-zag foot that has a wide opening for the needle. If the needle is still hitting the presser foot, then your machine may need adjustment or you can try a twin needle where the needles are closer together (twin needles are available with varying distances between needles).

What needles do i use?

Most sewing machines take 130/705 needles but you need to consult your owner's manual. There are some sewing machine, ie vintage for instance that do take needles that are more difficult to find.

Here's a site that will help you determine the the type and size needles to use for certain fabrics. Of course, you don't have to use Schmetz, but frequently you can find them on sale at the local fabric stores.

Which needle do I need

Depends on the machine but most take universal needles, ball point for strechy/Jersey fabric, there's a denim needle for heavy duty fabrics that's xtra sharp. Any brand will work on all major machines with low shank. I'm guessing that's what your asking?

What needles do I need

As above, your machine will work fine with either standard sewing machine needles or embroidery needles from Schmetz, Organ, or Singer, but most experienced users find they use standard sewing machine needles instead of embroidery needles which are much more expensive. The only difference is on embroidery needles the eye is slightly larger.

Now, as to your snapping thread! The needle is not usually the cause of that. Your problem is being caused by too much tension being applied to the thread BEFORE it goes into the thread path, or it can also be caused by aged thread. Even if you purchased it new, it could have been standing on the shelf for a while. Most experienced users don't put the thread on the provided spindle; instead, put it in a mug placed at the back of the machine away from the embroidery hoop, and then thread normally. If you have a CE-200, you will have an auxiliary silver thread holder at the back you can use before the thread enters the normal thread path. Also, try switching the thread (as well as the thread brand) you are using to test if the problem is the thread.

I have a juki mo 2512 and both needles broke need to know how I replace them?

I have a Juki MO103, on mine, I have to take a screw driver and loosen a screw on each of the needle bars to remove and replace the needles.

My machine requires two different sized needles so make sure you know what needles you need.

I need to find needles for my necchi model 3101FA in Wisconsin

Your machine uses standard needles. 15x1 system 705 sizes 9-18 which you can buy where ever needles are sold. If the needles appear to be too short, then you have a timing problem
