Default J1 research visa

Hi guys, I had a couple of questions regarding the J-1 research visa and would be grateful for any of your inputs.

A. Can I be self-funded or does there need to be fixed stipend that I should be recieving for the duration of my visa?

B. Would it be possible to change my J-1 research visa to a J-1 clinical visa while I'm out of country? or would I need to be in the States to change it?

C. Realistically, how common is it to get a waiver? and does that entail me working somewhere/paying a fee?
