You are going to need to fill out the proper paper work for immigration first and foremost. You wouldn’t want to come here illegally. As for living arrangements that needs to be made with your girlfriend. If she is of age (over 18) then she can look for an apartment while your paper work goes through. If she is not of age and is under the age of 18 then there are a lot of other things that she needs to handle, like her emancipation.

An illegal englishmen! =P

You would most likely contact Immigration and get a visa for your stay. If you want to become naturalized American you would probably have to apply for papers, and who knows if they will allow you to become a citizen.

Just get a visa for now, worry about the papers later.

That would depend on the type of visa you get. A travelers visa lasts for 6 months I think.
The best way to get the answers to these question would be to go to the nearest US embassy and ask them yourself.
This page might be very useful to you information wise.
