If I was looking to shoot my bench press up as quickly as possible, would going to the gym every other day and doing a 5x5 of:
Flat Bench Press
Standing Military Press
Standing DB Shoulder Press
Close Grip Bench Press
Would that be the best possible way? I would eat like a rhinoceros and just do that every other day. Or would that be overtraining?
I'd only do this for 5-6 weeks at most, so don't worry about me neglecting other parts of the body, because I'll get back to doing squats and deads after I hit my bench goal.

Yes that would be too much every other day. Sometimes more isnt better especially with strength.
Atmost I would do,
BB BP 5x5
Standing Millies 5x5
DB shoulder Press 4x6 or 3x8
CGBP same as DB shoulder press
I would only do this twice a week. I usually do shoulders a different day than chest.

Every week its a new "get rich quick" post from you regarding increasing your bench. If strength is goal, look at doing Madcows version of Bill Starr. Bryan Haycocks HST is good for size and strenght gains.
These things take time. You are likely 18 years old, you have your so much time ahead of you to increase your lifts.
Eat well, rest well and train hard. Consistently.
