I'm assuming the first word is suppose to be can. You can turn pens on a 12 inch lathe.

I turn pens (and everything else I turn) on a Jet 1014. It's a 10" diameter, 14" long lathe and has more than enough room for any pen I can think of. I don't see any 12" being a problem.
You should definitely watch some videos. It would take an essay for us to explain it in writing. Watch a few vids and if you still have questions, we'll be happy to help you out.

Penn State Industries will send you a free DVD on the subject.

Then, of course, they'll sell you all the bits and pieces you need to get totally hooked ...
