Future Expat needs help getting started. (Riyadh)

Hello everyone, I am a Muslim American looking to teach English in Saudi for maybe Protected content to save money, learn Arabic, and experience the culture. I am currently a high school teacher in Pennsylvania. I'm considering earning a degree in TESOL or a related field. I'm married with 4 children. My oldest son is now 17. I am literally at scratch as it relates to knowing how to go about the transition. Should I get the CElTA instead of the M.A.? Will my soon to be 18 year old son be able to stay with me in Saudi. Can I bring my wife and other children? Will I be able to study Arabic while holding a job. Will I be able to study Arabic formal way at all? My wife is a registered nurse. Will she be allowed to work in Saudi.
Hopefully someone can help me answer some of these questions. I'm determined to give it a try I just need some direction and info.

Thanks in advance.
