Islam/Zina.. (fulfilling desires)



I do understand that masterbating is not allowed in Islam.. except for certain times when one is scared of commiting a bigger sin like zina. For zina i have read so much but still things are not certainly clear to me. I read in one book that even looking at a na-mehram is a sin.. if you look at him one time its fine (underliberately) but second time is a sin. But a friend of mine told me that Hazrat Mohammad (saw) explained sahaba karam (r.a) zina by placing a pen in the ink pot as zinah..  means a complete consummation (physical intercourse)
I try my level best to change my mind from certain things... I dont watch any such wrong videos.. or songs or movies. Yet the sense is sometimes so strong that it is impossible for me to handle it. It is very difficult for me to tell my parents to get me married because things get very difficult. I am still studying and they want me to complete it before I get married. But i am very scared..
I read in another book that fasting helps you stop these impulses of (sexual desires) but how do we fast? everyday? and for how long?
what is the age in islam that a girl or boy should be married by then?
