I don't think that I would get a "No Objection" waiver now. Is there other way to stay and work in US?
You cannot qualify for either an H-1B visa or a green card without getting a J waiver. However, there may be other alternatives for you if you qualify. For instance, an O-1 visa or an F-1 visa or an E-2 visa.

EB-3 and H-1B are different. EB-3 is an immigrant visa and no you cannot adjust when you have the 2 year home rule unless you obtain a waiver from the US State Department. Yes you can change status to H-1B from J-1 if you have the 2 year home rule, since this is another non-immigrant status but later you cannot than apply for EB-3 unless you obtain waiver or go home for 2 years.
