Info IMG Aiming for orthopedics

Hello everyone
I'm an IMG medical student i was wondering what are my chances of getting into orthopedics and should I really aim for it, heres my plan and some I've already done.

Step1 = 258
Step2 not done yet aiming for 255-260s
Fluent in 3 languages: Arabic, English, Spanish (i plan on learning sign language)
I also plan on doing a research in orthopedics at least one is published
And in my final medical year i plan on doing 4 months Of electives in Us hopefully get 4 or more LOR during that time I want to volunteer on weekends or day offs to have a volunteering experience in US other than the ones i done at my hometown
Other bounces:
I know coding and app developing (i want to develop a medical app as a volunteering work)
Graphic designing and video editing < this is my part time job

Other things I'm considering:
Doing a masters degree
Particpate in conventions and such as

Finally I know most of these are plans but that's because I just finished my basic years (MBBS degree) I still have 2 years left to boost my application more i'm just wondering what are the chances for someone with my qualifications to secure an orthopedics residency.
