I want to have a home encryption on my desktop. I have two users, one for me and one for family/guests, and want an encryption only for me. So how can I setup a system properly? What about a swap encryption?

1) Create plain partition for system and encrypted one for your /home/user, optionally also encrypted swap.
2) Do not allow unencrypted swap. You are not there to unlock encrypted swap: guests run with RAM only. With reasonably modern RAM sizes it's not a problem.
