You should not petition for her for at least 90 days after she enters the US as a visitor.

Yes you could. But time wise depends on your status. Are you a permanent resident or U.S. citizen. Also, if she does arrive on a B1/B2 visa, she will have to overcome the pre-conceived intention when she came to the U.S. I recommend you hire an attorney to help you out with this.

If a mother comes to visit her U.S.A child who is over age 21, that U.S.A child can sponsor her to stay here to receive a green card, and if she's eligible, there would be no need to leave the country.

    You need to be very careful seeking a green card for her if she enters the United States as a visitor. You would be best advised to file just the immigrant visa petition and have your mother proceed through consular processing.

    If you are a U.S. citizen and over 21, your mom can apply for her green card while here on a visitor visa.
