    Your biggest issue will be citizenship.  You must be a US citizen at the time of commissioning.  Unfortunately, to become a pilot in the USAF you must be selected before the age of 30.  Unless there is a way to become a citizen and earn you comission before you turn 30, I doubt you will be able to fly for the USAF.

    Yes, if you get citizenship and are able to complete Officer Training School before your 30th birthday, you could get a pilot slot (precluding factors I don't know about).

    Yes, getting a PPL would help.  (That's not your biggest concern now.)

    To be a pilot of the U.S. Air Force, you must be selected before the age of 30. Unless there is a way to become a citizen, I wish you success.

    Stay cool and positive and try to focus on what you really want in your life. Meditate to calm your mind its really helps. Everything is possible. Never give up.
