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.

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, but the courts take it into consideration. And it will make it harder to achieve the emancipation because now you have to prove that becoming emancipated will be better than staying with your parents. The older you are the easier it is to be emancipated generally, but in most places you have to be at least 16 for it to be considered. And only about half the states allow emancipation in the first place.

Is there a way a 16 year old can move out of NV and live with their aunt?

The best way to do this involves the cooperation of the adults without going through the courts. If the aunt is a responsible person and the 16 year old has valid reasons for wanting to move out of their parents home. Have a sit down discussion, explain the rules - that everyone can agree on and decide if any money is involved (your aunt would be entitled to child support, until you are 18). Becoming emancipated by the courts in any state is expensive and time consuming, even then, there is no guarantee the judge will agree you should leave your parents home. You would need to prove you are financially able to care for yourself, agree to stay in school until you graduate and have your parents permission. If your aunt is willing to take on the responsibility of caring for you and your parents agree to let you go - you don't need to be emancipated, your parents would still be responsible for you and you need to prove to your parents that the move will solve a problem, not create new ones.

The easiest way is to turn 18 and become emancipated that way. If you reach for emancipation by the court, most of them are rejected.

Permission can often also be given by the court but they are possibly even more hard to convince than the parents.
