Is Ajahn Suchart the one that does the Dhamma in english Channel on youtube?
Yes, and I have been featured in several of his videos :)
Cool. I really like that channel. He answered a couple of my questions. I didn't realize people could stay there with him. how was it?
It makes any other meditation retreat seem easy. Being around Ajahn Suchart and at Wat Yan is certainly an experience. He is a very kind individual, and his behavior and practice is one to emulate.

Actually Pa Auk sayadaw isn't in Pa Auk's main any more, he's in Pyin Oo Lwin, and I'm not sure he is still teaching. Also, I don't think applying there would be an easy thing, especially from outside the country.
