It's possible, provided that you live in a state that has emancipation laws (not every state does) and you prove your case to the court. Among other things, you would have to prove that you are capable of supporting yourself (and that means of support can not be public assistance). You also have to prove that it's in your best interest to be emancipated. The courts generally don't like to override the authority of parents, and if your parents object, then you are really going to have to prove your case.

Can you move out at 14. Even if its to a friends house?

If you live in the US... Not unless your parents agree to allow it. And even then, there would be a multitude of issues that they would have to deal with, starting with giving this friends' parents some type of legal custody/ guardianship of you. Most places in the world your parents have to agree to it, and some sort of custody or legal guardianship is a good idea to avoid future legal issues. If your legally emancipated then if your friends parents say ok then it's fine, but you have to be LEGALLY emancipated, not about to be or filing for it.

No, not unless their parents agree to allow it. And even if the parents agree to allow it, an unemancipated minor cannot enroll themselves in school. The parents would have to give custody of the minor to an adult in the other state and then that adult would be the minor's guardian.

How do you get emancipated if you are 17?

I dont think you can. This depends on the laws of the country/state you live in of course. Your parents or legal guardian will allways have certain responsibility, even if you are allowed to marry, this unless the person whom you marry are emancipated. Then He/she takes over. It still vary with different laws in different states/countries.
