Minor's are not allowed to choose with whom they wish to live, although the judge may speak with the child and take his or her opinions into consideration when making custodial decisions. Likewise, the grandparent who has temporary custody cannot release the minor into the custody of any other person including a parent without first obtaining permission from the court.

Can a grandparent get coustody of their 16-year-old grandchild if the child wants to live with the grandparent and does the child have the right to move out of the parents' home?

A 16-year-old cannot leave home without parental consent. If they do and the parents call the police (and I'm assuming they would) then the police will pick the child up and return him/her home. Despite the fact that you are family, it is possible that you (the grandparent) could be charged with something along the lines of harboring a runaway/interring with child custody/contributing to the delinquency of a minor/etc (the exact charges depending on where you live). The grandparent can petition the court for custody, but unless they are able to prove the parents to be unfit in some way...

The judge will consider what the child wants but will not do what the child wants.

A fifteen year old may have the right to say what he believes is in his best interest, but he does not get to make the final decision.
