Regarding working and staying in Brazil:
You can get a 3 month tourist visa renewed for another 3, total of 6. After that, it's supposedly done for that year, and have to leave the country for another 6 months before returning. I haven't heard of anyone getting around that, but maybe you could payoff the right official. Don't count on it.

Regarding the work for foreigners; difficult to work legally in Brazil and the government don't pass out work visas easily either. It's possible to give private English lessons, which would require some networking and teaching skills.

Regarding going to school in Brazil: Need to speak Portuguese fluently to pull that off. Not unless you are just planning to take a basic language course, you probably wouldn't get too far with the university. Brazilians speak very little English, although you can get by if you have good Spanish.
