Yes. The court (I'm guessing this is a divorce thing) will usually honor a sixteen year old's request.

No.

Minors are not allowed to decide with whom the wish to reside.

A judge may speak with the child concerning issues such as the school they attend, friends, neighborhood, extracurricular activites and so forth.

Custodial decisions are always based upon what is in the best interest of the child and not the preference of any of the involved parties.
