1. As your relationship is only 6 months old she cannot sponsor you, unless
you get married first.

2. You may always file for extension of stay, but it is not always granted.

3. Only if you are married or common-law spouses (12 months cohabitation for
common-law required first).

4. As per my first answer getting married first is the best option. But if
she is not divorced yet then it is out of the question until she is free to
marry.

You've only been dating her for six months and you're not married, so
no.
    >
    > 2/ Can i go and stay under visitor visa apply to extend it to
    > stay longer
You may apply, but there is no guarantee a visa extension will be
approved. Indeed, a visa could be approved for shorter than the standard
six months in the first place.

    > 3/ If i can do the above can she sponsor me whist i am there under a
    > visitor visa
Theoretically she could if you are married. But since you can't be
married, it's a moot point.

    > 4/can we be married whislt i am there under visitor visa and stay while
    > she sponsors me
Theoretically she could if you are married. But since you can't be
married, it's a moot point.
