Tiger-you still have a couple of years to go before you're 18. The reality is that an 18 year old is not going to get a permanent visa to live in China.
Since you're on Youtube, I'd recommend you subscribe to Serpentza who lives and works in China and posts extensively on all aspects of living in China, including jobs for foreigners and the visa process he goes through. Here's one of his videos on visas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHXY2a2ye68
I'm totally down with you wanting to pursue your Buddhist studies, and even becoming a monk, in China. Not all places are the same, nor do people experience the same place in the same way. For instance, I have a massive affinity for Wutaishan (one of the 4 Holy Mountains in China), but Putuoshan (another one of the 4 mountains) left me cold. It's clear at this point in time you have a connection with China and that's good. There are some amazing monks and temples in China.
However, I would recommend that you don't put the cart before the horse. By this I mean, it's not all about getting a permanent visa in China at this point in time. That's a bridge you will eventually need to cross down in the future. I believe one of the other posters asked if you had the money to even buy an airplane ticket to China and spend time there. That bridge is still a few years away for you - will you be able to cross that bridge?
Here's the thing, are you willing to really work towards your goals regardless of set backs, or the difficulty of the journey? It may be you need to go to China on a tourist visa. Then you may need to do that again and again. Then something else may come up. Etc. Foreigners getting permanent visas to live in China are rare. But it doesn't mean you can't find a way to live for years in China (ala Serpentza). My wife is Chinese and I got married in China and it was a process where they kept throwing road blocks and obstacles in our way. What helped was guanxi/connections that forced the process to move forward. And that was just to get married. Even to get my wife over to the US, getting a permanent visa, had lots of obstacles and requires a lot of patience (and a ton of paperwork).
Not a criticism, but to help you set out on your goal, you should work to improve your writing and language skills when posting here. We all make some typos and don't proof-read our work as well as we should (I know I don't), but it will go a long way to getting the people who will really matter in making your aspirations a reality behind you.
