You cannot do a K1 as a greencard holder, only once you are a US citizen.

An F2B is for unmarried sons and daughters of greencard holders; you CAnnot get married on it before entering the USA- your visa would get cancelled-, but you CAN go to the USA on your visa, get your greencard, then visit your home country and get married, and file for her spousal visa. From filing to interview it will take about 2 years.
