I have btc in coinbase, how do I switch some of it to ethers? I don't have a bank account attached to it, and don't want to. I tried the coinbase information, but it says I have to attach a bank account.

You can go to gdax.com (the exchange portion of coinbase), and from there you are able to deposit your BTC that is currently in your Coinbase account. From there, simply make the exchange on the ETH-BTC market. You can then withdrawal the ETH back into your Coinbase account.
Open a Jaxx Wallet and send your bitcoin there and you can switch to ethereum there
The simplest method would be to set up a local currency wallet on Coinbase, and sell your BTC to that wallet. Then, you can use the funds from that wallet to purchase ETH.
