No. First, as a juvenile until the legal age of 18, a child cannot choose which parent to live with. They can petition the court to be heard and they can have a parent work on their behalf. But second, the court isn't terribly interested in rearranging court orders because certain parents allow more freedom. The decision to change a custody order is based on the child's overall welfare and protection from abuse or neglect.

A minor can not choose where to live. That is up to the parents or the court depending on the details. If your non-custodial parent who lives out of state wants you to live with him/her, they have to petition for custody unless your custodial parent will consent to the change and join in a modification of the custody order.
