'It makes it himself' is nonsense in English.

Or "he does it by himself"? Or would that be different in Romanian?

That would be "O face el de unul singur".

How about "He makes it himself"? I am trying to find a translation that makes sense.

pretty much he does/makes it himself. as in, he doesn't ask someone else to do it, but does it himself.

DL accepted my translation, "He makes it himself". I believe the verb "face" is "to make" OR "to do".

If the purpose of "însuși" is to give emphasis, then a better English translation might be "He himself does it"

I'm not sure why you think that. I'm English and think "He himself does it" and "he does it himself " both have the same amount of emphasis on the fact it is him and no-one else that does it. The former seems a little unnatural though "you, yourself" is less awkward somehow"

This sounds like a question in the Romanian to me - am I right?

Both question and statement can be understood. Of course for the question you have to use a question mark
