As for the beit hachayal, I would not recommend "living" there. It's a hostel and not a place to call home. There are many kibbutz programs available and I would suggest looking into one of those.

Beit haChayal is for soldiers. You can't stay there until you're in the military. And again, it's not a place to call home. You need to figure out a different place to stay both before and after you've begun your service. If you start out on a kibbutz, you can still decide to move into an apartment with friends you've made in the army at a later point.

Otherwise, you should be able to solve this in Israel as well. Unfortunately, I can't help you with the specifics but I'd suggest you google to find other people who were in a situation similar to yours.
