To ask how you do something you can say "dou yatte" (how done).

The word for how in Japanese is "how" and you can use it like you do in English, except for a few expressions:

dou shimashita ka?/dou shitta (ka)? - what happened?
dou yatte - how do you do it?

Those are the ones I know; I'm sure someone could add more.

Yes you can say "dou yatte" or " donoyouni"

ex) How do you read in Japanese?
Nihongo de donoyouni yomimasuka?/ Nihongo de douyatte
yomimasuka?
