Resolved Question:

is there anything that rules that a victim, whom is a minor and the only witness, cannot or will not testify as a state witness, at a trial, on their behalf because they are a child with no dna, assault or another witness under 21.11 tx penal code?

The testimony of the child would be necessary, for the State to be able to obtain a conviction. Normally, the testimony of a minor in a sexual assault case, is taken via video tape, with both the prosecutor and defense attorney present, to question the child.
