Hate to be a party pooper, but I really think a marine tank is going to be too difficult and too expensive for you at this time. I understand you are still at school and live in an area that doesn't provide easy access to the equipment you would need.
After the rough experiences you've had over the past few months, I'd recommend getting some easy-to-care-for fish to build up some experience with filtration, water testing, disease prevention and treatment etc etc.
the fish that you have not been able to keep alive were IMO
too advanced for your current experience and budget.
There's plenty of time for a salty when you are bringing in a wage. For now just enjoy the simple pleasures of an easy tropical tank
Just my 2 cents.
