tell me what it is and explain it fully please
When you hover your mouse over an enemy, the enemy's name and stats appear at the top of the screen. If you click and hold your attack button while the enemy's name is visible, you have achieved namelock and you will automatically continue attacking that enemy as fast as you can until the enemy is dead, or you lift your finger.

Namelock for teleporting characters is when you hover your pointer over the enemy monster so that the name shows up on the top of the screen. Then with tele equipped to the right click button you right click on the monster and it will tele you right on top of them. This is especially helpful for hammerdins as if you teleport right on top of them it is the EXACT position to hit the monster with a hammerdins hammer.

It works for all characters because all it really is is hovering your clicker over the monster. And yes it will keep going until you run ot of mana as long as the mouse is still on the monster. If you want to readjust it you just move the mouse.

yeah, just click on someone and never let go. Good for taking down runners with a blizz or bowazon. Any accurate ranged for that matter. Useless for Fball, since even monsters are smart enough to strafe them

If someone moves out of namelock in a PVP battle all it does is "disengage" it. All it is is the character moving away from where your cursor is and thus there is no more namelock. All you'd need to do is find him and put your cursor back over him(or her).
