Make a bigger doorway in a load bearing wall

I live in a single story ranch style home. There is a wall the separates my kitchen and what I use now as an office. I want to add a kitchen table in my "office room" and make it an eat in kitchen of some sort. I am wanting to modify this load bearing wall somehow to open it up where I will be able to see the table from the kitchen side, whether that be extending to doorway to make it larger, or add some kind of "cut out" to the wall where I can add bar stools as well. If I havent confused you already, I would like to know what steps I would need to take to be able to tackle this by myself. Thank you
