See the documentation of the command ispell-change-dictionary.  The
command itself can be invoked from the menu-bar's
Tools->Spell-Checking->Change Dictionary dialog.

I see you run Emacs on Windows.  That might be a problem, since you
need to find the american dictionary built for the Windows port of
Ispell.  Sorry, I don't know where to find such dictionaries on the
net.  However, I'd guess that the default english.aff file is actually
for the American English, it's just a medium-size dictionary, not a
large one.

As for the personal dictionaries, see the documentation of the
variable ispell-personal-dictionary.
