Default 2 Questions..Ur Guidance is needed

Hi guys
I recently checked out the electives requirement from a website and this is what they say regarding IMGs:
A faculty member who wishes to invite and sponsor an acquaintance, who is an International medical student, to visit them for an elective in their department, should send a written request supporting the student to office of Student Affairs (The student can only participate in course work within the sponsors specialty, if accepted by the course director). With the approval of the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, the application packet will then be sent to the student as an email attachment.

Does that mean I can't apply unless someone in their faculty invites me?? I'm confused.

Second question, this is what they say regarding english fluency. I did not think TOEFL was required:
Students from non-English speaking countries must supply a certificate of fluency in the English language (spoken and written) such as a TOEFL or the sponsor must know that the student is fluent in medical English. The faculty sponsor will be responsible for answering questions and providing required correspondence for VISA applications. VSAS will not be used for International Medical Student applicants.

Does this mean I need to do the TOEFL too? Thanks much appreciated!
