No one teaches it because it is not financially feasible to do it and yields nothing particularly interesting or useful.

Alchemy gave rise to the modern science of chemistry, so I wouldn't say it's useless.  However, if you're asking if you can learn how to turn lead into gold, then no-one can teach you.

The process has applications, so it is useful, but not really for making gold.

Yes, it is pretty much a dead end in terms of turning lead into gold. You can do it, but it is no good financially or practically.

Well, good luck achieving that - you'll spend more trying to do that than the value of the gold you produce.

That's not chemistry; it's nuclear physics.
