Yes, Mexican citizens needs a visa to travel to the US from Mexico.

Yes, you can marry her if you'd like but if she does not have a visa to travel to the US then you would need to travel to Mexico or another country to marry her.

I am not sure what you mean by keep her here without American citizen. Please explain this question. Thanks.
