Question What visa for Elective rotations!

well...i will be applying for a electives in us next year..now i ve some issues and quries concerning visa..
1) since im a student at the moment, what visa type will I have to apply for electives so that my application wont get rejected?.....
a) B1/B2 (Business and Tourism) or
b) F1 and M1 (Students)
2) a relative of mine would be basically sponsering me,she is a docter in us for 25 years(beside her there may be other relative who are willing to help me with the expanses who live in us)...she will be handling all the expenses from visa to ticket to my expenses in us...the reason for this is that my parents wont be able to afford all this much expenses..although my parents have many financial assets but they wont sell it for my electives and there monthly income is low for all these expenses...so the point is my relatives n us are my sot of gaurdians here
3) is it wise to tell the counsler that i plan to do usmle in the future and that my parents will be immigirating in time i complete my medschool thru family basd immgt F4 category and tell them uscis case no and nvc no of ur parents case..i mean why hide the fact that your entire relatives are in us(most of them docters) and that by the time i graduate my parents too be moving to states..
4) will they they accept a gaurantee from a us citizen that i will return to my homeland at the end of electives..
5) is it necessary to carry transcripts of med scool..i mean if the gpa`s rnt good ..wont that make a bad image..or should we just take the recent transcripts with good scores
6) how much time prior to electives prgm should we apply for the visa so tat one may reach before the electives start..
