Is it possible to develop and learn BREW for free without intending to distribute?

Yes, you can download Brew SDK for free and start learning. There are plenty of resources avialable on this website. Brew SDK ships BrewMP simulator for running and testing the application functionality. 
 
You can start with primer and go through Brew API reference for more detailed description of api's

I apologize for not being very clear. I would like to develop a GPS app for my phone, which is a Link II.

Yes but make sure your phone is test bit enabled, this will make sure to upload your application by cable loading. You can send your phone to Qualcomm phone center to get it flashed with latest s/w build and also get test bit enabled. Just try to connect your phone to PC USB port using USB cable and try to load any application using Loader tool and see if you are able to load the application. Now reset the phone and see if your application is name is visible in application manager. You can launch it from here.
Also note that you can develop GPS application and test it on simulator as well. The BREW SDK provides GPS emulation; users can set the GPS emulation in the Tools->GPS Emulation menu to use a pre-recorded NMEA file as GPS input, or connect an NMEA-output capable GPS device. An offline utility called NMEALogger.exe can be used to record an NMEA file from data coming from a GPS device connected to the serial port of the desktop/laptop. This NMEA file can be used later as GPS input.

Also note that if your phone is 3.x and above then it would be test enabled by default. In your case looks like you are talking about your own phone and this i guess should be commercial device then in this case, your device'e EFS would be locked and you wouldn't be able to load apps on phone. If this is the case then you need to unlock the phone by sending it to qualcomm phone center or OEM's store.

I'd also like to use the BrewMP SDK to do personal, (non-comercial), development for my phone (an  LG Xpression C359 -  using BrewMP 1.0.4). However, is there a way to do this for free?  
When I try to use the AppLoader, it opens up a dialog trying enable developer mode by using the Developer Mode Enablement Service - which as far as I know, requires being an authorized developer doesn't it?  
At least I assume so, because when I put my non-authenticated developer username, and password in, it gives me this error:  Unable to complete the enablement request as there are no base records found for the Policy. (error code 154800659).
Any help would be apreciated.
