    Of course you need an appropriate visa for the purpose & duration of your stay. You cannot obtain citizenship, and long-term visas are difficult to obtain.

    IF you are accepted as a university student & prove you have sufficient funds for all school + living expenses + return transportation to your country of citizenship, you can apply for student visa. If approved, last day of full-time class attendance or graduation is the last day your student visa will be valid.

    IF your qualified employer wants to transfer you to their Chinese offices/operations, and you meet all requirements for such a visa, your employer must apply for your temporary employment visa.

    So why do you want to stay in China for a couple of years? See the website for the Chinese govt's visa & immigration website, or the website for the Chinese consulate nearest your home in your country to see if you might qualify for some type of temporary visa.

    You need

    1) The appropriate visa

    2) Proof of adequate finances to support you during your entire planned trip (without this you don't get a visa)

    You can't get citizenship. There are visa requirements clearly spelled out on their embassy website. When I was in China, we were able to go to Hong Kong and get our visas renewed, But they were still for a short period. If you find a place willing to take you on for the shaolin training you want, they will likely know what kind of visa you need to get. Do some googling.

    Mostly you just need money.

    People with money get to hang out in other countries as long as they like.
