Yes, this is a gigantic problem.
You can not get your greencard without leaving the US ... meet with a lawyer immediately.
Right now you only need a waive of the 3 year bar .. if you stay any longer you may have a 10 year bar.

Yes. You will not become an LPR from inside the USA without extensive and rather targeted intervention of G-d. You wait until you reach that 6 months threshold and you will not be able to get your immigrant visa for the three year period immediately following your exit of the United States. You continue this marathon to reach a 365 days threshold and you will not see that immigrant visa for the 10 year period immediately following your exit of the United States. As to potential availability of a waiver for you, schedule an in-person appointment with an immigration attorneys for a detailed and useful discussion. It will not be free, I know, but might be useful.

Only immediate relatives who fall outside of the preference system can have this forgiven by a relation to a U.S. citizen. Consult with an attorney to see if there is any way in your background to get a legal status for you. Once you have 180 days of unlawful presence, your exit from the U.S. will trigger the three year bar to re-entry. If you accrue more than 365 days of unlawful presence, then you will trigger the ten year bar to re-entry. It sounds like you need to consult with an attorney asap.
