Question is CR-1 possible while still being on J-1 two year home residency requirement?

Hello! I have been looking through different topics here, but I could not find a similar to my story. I would really appreciate your help and any advice, based on your own or your friends' experience. So here is my story...
I went to the US on exchange program sponsored by the US government having J-1 visa, where I met my fiance. After my program I came back to my home country to start my 2 Year Home Residency Requirement (YHRR). Now it has been 10 months, and we are looking for ways to be together as soon as possible. I started searching for Master's programs and scholarships, which will put me on F-1 student visa. So here is my question!

Should we find a way to get me to the US and get married there, and start changing my status. BUT, my J-1 2 YHRR will not be completed yet, which means I will not be able to change my status... or am I wrong??

Second way is to get married in my home country, and while staying my second year of HRR we should start working on my immigrant visa. Here I also have a question - can I start the process of getting my immigrant visa (CR-1) while being on that requirement?

Any other advice or an option in this situation will be welcomed!! Thank you so much for your assistance beforehand!
p.s.if you need me to specify something, go ahead and ask me a question!
