If you have problems dealing with 'governmentease' like I do, probably the simplest way of applying for a vanity call sign is through 'W5YI'. It isn't free, you pay for 'them' handling the paper work.
Finding out if a particular call sign is available is fairly simple, go to N4MC's site and look it up.

I agree Doc. I used their services to obtain my vanity call. I got what I wanted, a 2x1 call in my region. I recently did my change of address on line at the FCC site. That wasn't too difficult. The attempt at a vanity call I was looking for was handled much better by them than if I had attempted it. It can be done on line but the results could be tricky.

Sign up with QRZ, it's free.
Log in, go to your profile, click on
the spot for applying for a vanity. It takes you to the correct FCC spot. I believe there's an $8 charge. I don't think the FCC does anything for free. It was $8 for a change of address application as well. Just be ready with multiple call choices you want. It surprising when you find the call you may want is not available.
