Default about USCE & matching

Hello guys I'm new here On the Forum
I m currently an Internatinal medical student , but i still havent started yet the prep ( mostly by lack of info ) and i wanted to know if having a USCE is Obligatory , what if i get good scores on my Step 1 and without having any USCE .. Do i have a chance to get a residency ..? or will i be just wasting time since i don't know how i can get any USCE ..!

another question is how could an IMG have a USCE ?? since most of us only go to the USA to pass the step 2 CS ??!

my last question is about the Visa , is it true that even if i go through all if the steps with good scores .. there isn't that much of residency programs that sponsor IMG who do not have a green card / US citizenship ? is it true !!
I have been doing a lot of research these days i was really super excited at first .. but since i went through some topics mentioning those things i didn't understand .. i got really frustrated
Thanks a lot guys ..
