Trackstand:
Pretty much what was said above is how I do it, but tbh I suck at it... Just roll to a stop, modulate your brakes a bit to keep from rolling all over the place, and balance. I think it helps to see how far you can lean side to side, helps you get a feel for it.

Sidehop:
I usually roll along, lean a bit off to the side of the bike, then do a standard bunny hop, pulling the bike over to you.
Pulling the bike to you seems to be a key to success in jumping, bunny hops, etc. Like if you ride up a jump, stand up pretty high when you're at the top, then in the air, pull the bike up before you land. Makes it a bit easier to hit your.. anatomy harder on the seat, but you get more air from the jumps


What's a pogo anyway?
