Your best hope is to find someone in your area, and apply.

You can get into testing without any special work experience or further education. What companies generally look for is enthusiasm for games, willingness to work overtime and good communication skills (particularly writing ability as the programmers and producers will need to be able to understand your bug reports when they read them).

No. Don't do that. Apply the way they ask for on their site.
