I've been searching the nether for a while now trying to find a stronghold. Is there an easy way to find one? Like are they situated over lava in the open or something? Also would destroying the nether portal and rebuilding it reset the area I spawn in there?

It's all about luck. It took me quite some hours and some saves to get into one.

I would say you should use a fly mod and then just fly around until you find one :) you should probably mark your portal so you can find back xD

From my experience atleast, your portal is usually somewhat near one

Cool, cheers for the advice. If I destroy the portal I have at the mo in the normal world and re make it, would it create a new spawn in the nether?

I don't think so, once you have built a portal, I'm pretty sure that for that area it stays there even if you move the original portal.  Also, every other portal built within the 1023 block range will go to the same portal in the Nether.  Now, if you move it 1024 blocks away from the first one then you will get a new portal location in the nether.
