No, as a minor you are not allowed to choose who to live with. That is up to the parents.

For the child to choose where to live the child have to be 18 years old.

yes, as long as the parents agree to allow their child to live with their grandparents its fine as long as the grandparents can support the child.

Under Tennessee statute, the court will consider the reasonable preference of the child over the age of 12. They can choose to listen to what the child wants but they are not obliged to follow that wish. And the child can only choose between parents not friends etc. To move from parents they need parental consent. The court will not agree to that a child moves from fit parents to live with friends or grandparents.

No. If there is a valid concern, the grandparents can file a child in need of care motion. At the hearing, the judge can choose to interview the child on the choice and the reasons behind it. Often, a child expresses a desire to live with grandparents. I very much remember that point in 1969.

No, they must file a child in need of care motion with the court.

It isn't decided by a child, that is why you go to court, and handle it officially. A judge will chose.

For the grandparents to get the custody over the parent, they have to go through a court case and prove to their case to have custody.

No. There is no guardianship and no court orders. The parents can however demand the child to come home at any time. Even with police help. He could be reported as a runaway and in that case it is illegal for the grandparents to help him.
