I need help with my intonation!
1. I compare the 12th harmonic and 12th fret right? but the fretted note changes pitch if i press harder.. i can basically do a vibrato like that. am i suppose to press all the way or just a little?
2. All my fretted notes were more sharp than the harmonics. if the fretted note is higher, we make the string longer right? (the bridge moving opposite of the neck). Some strings, it's moved all the way toward the bridge, and it's still sharp. What should i do? do i need to adjust the height?

try changing your strings. they've probably been on for too long, hence intonation is impossible.

The height has nothing to do with it , and your harmonic on the 12th should be the same as your fretted 12th... fretted notes should be the pitch you get when pressing down just enough to get a tone, not pressing down as hard as you can

1. i just changed to these strings
2. the fret note is always sharper than the harmonics... i'm adjusting it and it doesn't go anymore to make it intonated!

It would be something to do with your setting up at the nut, and at the saddle. You may need to take it to a techy.
