my 12 years daughter loves 13 years old girl. She said she is not lesbian, she wants to be a boy to be wit her. She is too young and i want to help her to better understand her feeling and to find the right person.
thank you

At 12 I'd be more focused on the fact that it is too young for her to be in love with anyone. NOT that she is too young to have those feelings, but there is much more to life than just that.... and she needs to have a different focus until she is older (like school, sports, church, etc...).

I would NOT try and convince her that she doesn't want to be a boy or have to try and find her 'a nice boy' to fall in love with instead. Perhaps you can get her into counseling so that she can better be able to understand and cope with these feelings.
