Australia - Student visa - How can I bring my girlfriend?

Hi, I'm asking maybe a little bit weird question but still.

I'm an international student studying in Australia on my Subclass 573 visa. The visa is about to expire in March 2011, I'm expecting to graduate in December 2010 and is eligible to apply for 485 visa. I don't want to return back, but rather stay in Australia and work here.

This July I traveled back to Russia for a holiday (yes, I'm Russian), met my ex-girlfrend and... have fallen deeply in love with her, butterflies and stuff. Now we have a long distance relationship, skyping every day, I miss her very much and want her to be with me and even ready to marry her.

So, I've got questions:

1. Can I add her to my Student visa now given the facts that we have such a short relationship, not married officially and my visa is about to expire pretty soon?

2. Can I add her as a dependent applicant when I apply for the 485 visa? Considering that she is not in Australia? Maybe she can get a Tourist visa, come here, marry me and then we can apply? Even if she has a No Further Stay condition, is it a way to waive it, probably write a letter to DIAC explaining the situation and circumstances? Cause we're not bloody dodgy illegal immigrants smugglers but truly deeply in love and just want to be together.

3. If not, what can we do to be together in Australia?

There are difficulties with all of what you raise, meaning there are specific eligibility requirements so have a look at the eligibility sections of the various visas - Department of Immigration & Citizenship and you will see what I mean, for instance with a student visa I think you will find that because she was not listed on your student visa you cannot add her now as a secondary applicant and on a 485, she would need to be here on an eligible visa to be added to your 485 application.
Her coming on a tourust visa and you getting married will not waive a NFS condition.
