Is he gullible enough to get him to participate in a neuropsych evaluation by telling him you think he's too dumb to pass the test?
If you think you can get him to participate, arranging the evaluation should be easier.

Its highly highly highly unlikely that he has disociative identity disorder (multiple personalities), his mood swings and changes sound like they cycle which is more bipolar perhaps. Yeah guardianship is difficult to obtain, it takes money and time, for some people it really is the best option, especially for ones who behave in a difficult fashion like your brother, but again its hard to obtain because we live in a country that is very pro individual rights.
I need help managing my affairs and my mother helps me, there's no need for her to seek guardianship over me though because I'm keenly aware that I need asistance and am very willing to get help when I need it. Your mom sounds like a dork, keeping copies of stuff is pretty important in these situations.
Is he still in hospital? The thing about hospitals is that they only keep you a short time, their goal is to get you out. Getting a second opinion might be worth while, but I don't know that a private opinion is inherrantly any better, but try anyways. Insist to the hospital also that they do everything, MRIs etc. Especially since this was injury induced.

Can he stay with you for awhile? I remember you saying you had your own house. Sounds like he needs monitoring and some medication to lift him out of the darkness that he is in right now.
Hope all works out okay.

My grandma who had all the issues, in the worst stage of her alcoholism and just after a heartattack and drugged up, butted against paranoid, delusional, and psychotic. We had to deal with her pulling knives on us and breaking down the bathroom door because she was about to electrocute herself in the bathtub. We still don't know if it was just an act. She tended to be WAAAAY overdramatic and a little histrionic.
It doesn't sound like she was as bad as your brother, but, I do know it's pretty hard to deal with, and you have enough problems of your own. Being around someone who drinks as much as it sounds like your brother does probably is even dangerous for you, because you're trying to get a handle on things yourself. At the same time, you know you have to do something... So maybe you've kind of already decided.
And who knows? Maybe he'll be wanting to get out of that hospital now so badly that he'll be glad to see you. If not, since fear about getting kicked out of your dad's house prompted this incident, he might not be suicidal anymore once he's got a place to stay. So maybe if you take him home then give him some space at first he'll come around.
I also think that it's important to recognize what a person's tendencies are. If your brother gets into fights but has never killed anyone or started fires, he may not have that tendency. But hopefully you have home owners insurance.

I'm just looking to make a safety net for him while my dad finally gets him the government help he TRULY deserves.
