The basic rule is, a foreign national who is unlawfully present in the US must return to their country of origin and apply for reentry under the established USCIS regulations. Exceptions are made depending upon the individual's circumstances. Please visit the official USCIS website for specific information.

Yes. A same-sex spouse can sponsor a foreigner for legal residency. The problem is, however, that if you entered the country illegally, you must pay the penalty for illegal entry into the United States. This is usually a 10-year exile in your country of origin. If you entered legally but overstayed your visa, then the process is much easier.
