Considering this, is buying a Lord title legal?
If you want to change your title to lord, it is perfectly legal. And if others choose to give you benefits because of the title, that is their prerogative.
Also, can you buy a British title? First things first: You can't simply buy your way into the British peerage. True royal titles are either inherited or granted by the Queen. Selling these titles is actually against the law. But there's another class of titles in the U.K. known as manorial titles, and these can be sold.
Keeping this in consideration, what titles can you buy?

Is it illegal to call yourself sir?
It is actually against the law to call yourself a Sir without having gained a Knighthood. A Knight title can only be granted by the Crown, and it is always for services to the British Empire.
