"Have been doing" is usually used for act that is continuous. Whether you use "have done" or "have been doing" also depends on whether you are still doing the act. With "since", it usually means you are still doing it, so you need to use "have been doing". With "for", you can use both, again depending on whether you're still doing it now.
