I'm a 20 yr old single mom just got here a year ago i got misinformation about being able to bring my baby... now I'm trying to bring him here because my auntie who's helping taking care of him died a month ago.
Yes you can and should. The 21-year age restriction only applies to I-130 petitions for parents and sibling applications not children and spouses. The weight is not that long. They process now petitions filed in October of 2010. There is also a humanitarian parole possibility but that one is hard to get, though your situation may be ripe for it.
Yes, if you are a permanent resident you can petition to have your son issued a green card as well. If your son is outside of the US, the application would have to be processed at the consulate office of your home country. The length of time it would take to process the application depends on the particular consulate. However, if approved your son's visa would be immediately available. If, however, you are not a legal resident then you are not eligible to apply for your son.
