You can apply, but I can't say what they will think about the criminal charge.
I am licensed in Michigan. While the federal immigration laws apply to all states, the shoplifting charge is a state issue and so you should consult with a Texas criminal defense attorney.

Yes it matters. Minors are treated differently than adults, but I don't know enough about Texas law to confidently say what the difference would be for you.

Possibly. In MI it varies by crime; I assume that it would vary in Texas too but I don't know for certain.

I should clarify: when I said that being a minor mattered, I was referring to the criminal conviction, not to the effect on your immigration status or to your ability to qualify under the new policy. There are still a lot of details about the new policy that we don't know yet (that haven't been announced or determined).
