I am wondering if it is difficult to propagate honeysuckle vines like dropmore scarlet and major wheeler? Would it be a very slow process to get a decent sized vine?

In Zone 8 all you have to do is show them dirt and they'll sprout roots - Honeysuckle is invasive in my zone - they produce hundreds of seeds for months. They aren't hard to root at all. Just take a 6 inch cutting of new growth and strip the leaves of of the bottom 2 inches and stick them in the soil up to the first leaf. Keep the pot in bright shade and soil moist. You should have roots in about a week or two.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Another way to propagate honeysuckle is serpentine layering. Simply bend a piece of the vine to the soil (on the ground or pot) and cover with soil. Be sure to bury at least one node and you may want to pin it down so that it doesn't accidentally come out. Some people recommend wounding the plant slightly other say it's not necessary.

Each year I propagate Honeysuckle to give away at our local plant swap. I use landscape pins at each node to secure a length of vine to the soil surface, then cover lightly with mulch.

I agree with Jay and Greene layering is the way to go, be it in ground or in a pot.
