I want to main a bow but I never have enough ammunition to satisfy.

And what to do I do to find diamonds? Just mine down until I hit bedrock?

either build a mob trap and get them from skeletons.. or kill skeletons manually

How does one build this "mob trap"?

Killing skeletons (unless you use a spawner) is a very crappy way to get arrows. Kill chickens and zombies any chance you get for their feathers. Get 20 gravel, build a pillar, and shovel it down, build it, and shovel it, etc. Each time you have a chance to get flint.

Hey man i can show you how to make a pretty sweet mob trap. I started yeterday and have like 200+ arrows because of it. My GT is D0NNY1 (the 0 in D0NNY1 is a zero.)

In order to get arrows you should probably kill skeletons. The mob trap idea is that if you find a dungeon that has a mob spawner inside of it that is spawning skeletons, you can create a trap so that when the skeletons spawn they die and you can collect their stuff. It takes time and luck to find a spawner though.
To mine you should be at the level 13 or bellow (13 counting from bedrock up). Then mine in a straight line however many blocks you want, then go back to where you started and mine in another straight line but this line is 3 blocks away from the original line. It should look like this:

L SS L SS L SS L
L SS L SS L SS L
L SS L SS L SS L

L=Line S=Stone (or any other block)
This makes it so you can see both sides of the wall without having to do any extra work.

The spawner theory you have is very flawed my friend. Skeletons will spawn in the dark regardless of a spawner.
