Learn what Buddhism is. Start at the root of the tree, not some random leaf that blows by and asking, "is this leaf part of the tree that is Buddhism?" Go to a Library and check out a book. Start at page 1.
Or since you are pulling stuff off the Internet, go to Wikipedia and type in Buddhism. Wikipedia has a whole series on Buddhism http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Buddhism
Start there. Page 1.
Don't start at random stuff floating by.
I know you like Kung Fu. There's a classic Kung Fu comedy - I can't remember the name of the film - about a young kid who goes to the Shaolin temple to learn Kung Fu. There are 32 levels/schools, each more advanced then the one before. Since he's in a hurry to learn, he decides to start at Level 32 because if he starts there, he'll have mastered Kung fu. Of course, humorously, it doesn't go well for him. Eventually he starts at the first level then ends up a master (iirc).
The quickest way to learn something is start at the beginning. As you progress, you begin to realize that you actually know a lot more than people who've been around for a long time but who never took the time to do that.

It appears that you have a wonderful exploration going on.... at this point, explore it all. If you are asking about laws of attraction and vibration, that's fine, and it's good information for you that your exploration goes beyond Buddhism. At this point the exploration is taking you beyond a specific tradition like Buddhism. I encourage you to look at everything and then see what calls you without question... perhaps it's best if you hold off making any final conclusion. I'd also suggest that you don't seek advice from Buddhists except about topics related to Buddhism. Explore and see where it takes you. Then you can rest in the path that is appropriate for you. It is entirely up to you, don't rush into anything. I am seeing that you ask and ask, which is wonderful, just ask people who can respond to specifics of each path. When you seek guidance and receive responses, you have a responsibility to deeply consider what is said and IF it can further your process... it's entirely up to you in the end, but you must take it in. You do NOT have to agree with anything, but you do have to take it in because you asked for it. You have received a lot of good offerings but I only see you asking more and more questions. This is a natural part of spiritual maturation until you slow down. Keep going, keep asking. And, learn to take it in and ask how might illumine your understanding, or not. It is up to you.
My observation is that it would be good for you to actually find out about the specifics about Buddhist practice and theory as well as any other tradition that interests you. You are young and there is plenty of time. Trust yourself and seek guidance if you need it.
Personally, I am not willing to continue spending time on this when no consideration has been given to my thoughts. You DO NOT have to agree, but I don't see that any of the good thoughts from all these people is not being taken in for your consideration. This is important if you are to mature spiritually.

If they were more courageous, they would be more successful. The Buddhist approach is to live each day with gratitude. Gratitude is stronger than courage, because courage is often unstable. It can be tipped over and lost.
Its fashionable to tie spiritual ideas to science, which is why quasi-scientific terms like vibration are popular. The relationship between science and spirituality is difficult and can't be explained in a brief reply.
