I doubt those who practice Chaos magick would consider what they do 'faking it'. There are other threads in this board that might clarify this a bit... as I am not the one to explain it much further.
As for your second question, I can tell you that the SacredTexts website classifies them both under the heading 'Esoteric and Occult'. Given what little I know of Discordia, she does seem to love chaos, though... Did you look at those threads under Hellenism?

So, then Choas magic is sort of like fake it until you gain the power of the belief you're looking for? Is this tied in to the Principia Discordia?
I wouldn't call it "faking it". I'd call it "thinking that all beliefs are fundamentally equal in terms of achieving a result; so long as they observe the aspects of Statement of Intent, gnosis, etc"
Thus, many (if not all) Chaotes think that it doesn't matter if you believe if it works or not, just as long as it observes the aspects which are inherent in basically, all traditions--which Chaos Magic sums up in their own terminology (SOI, magical link, gnosis, etc.)
I haven't seen anyone call Chaos Magic a means to gaining some power of belief. Mostly, I've seen people call it a metaparadigm, one which states that all are useful.
However, it is not really "tied" to the Principia Discordia or Discordianism in general...they are more of "lovers" or "co-existers", they kind of feed each other, in a sense of the phrase.
i met a practitioner of chaos magick and she was so out there. she would agree with this and slam your thoughts on any subject. i personally thought she might be suited for discordianism.....
"The clitoris is pure in purpose. It is the only organ in the body designed purely for pleasure. The clitoris is simply a bundle of nerves: 8,000 nerve fibers to be precise. Thats a higher concentration of nerve fibers than is found anywhere else in the body, including the fingertips, lips, and tongue, and it is twice the number in the penis. Who needs a handgun when you've got a semiautomatic?"

Kuro Tenshi: How can one prove to themself that magic is real?

Obviously: One can prove that magic works to themselves by attempting different spells and having positive results that match up with their intention. This is how one proves anything by use of experiment. Anything other than that is simple self-delusion.
