Is it self nomination only or can we nominate other users?

    I believe it's only by self nomination.

    That is correct. Nominating others happens, as far as I know, only on beta sites to select the pro tempore moderators. But there, these users confirm (or reject) their candidacy, and nothing prevents you from pinging someone you find suitable, of course.
