I'm just wondering, if you were bulimic, how do you increase your metabolism or digestive system process?

Eating healthy!

Digestive_health
Developing healthy eating habits, with protein based meals, small meals but frequent. Just like everyone else who is paying attention to healthy eating. A better question is how can you stop binging? That requires a team of health care professionals which includes a psychiatrist, a psychotherapist, a nutritionist, an internal medicine doctor, and, often very effective, group therapy sessions.

I think my stomach is very slow at digesting food. Is there a way to increase your digestive metabolism?

Yes

Enzyme
Taking digestive enzymes before or with meals may help. Also you should have your stomach acid checked to see if it is producing sufficient acid to begin the digestive process.

I don't think my stomach is emptying fast enough. Is there a way to measure the rate of my digestive metabolism?

Yes

Radioactive
There is a test to measure gastric emptying. It involves eating a meal which is tagged with radioactive tracer and lying under a camera to determine how long it takes to exit your stomach. This has little to do with metabolism however.
