EDIT: As Tanuki says, if you want an introduction, try to come up with something that works within your knowledge. Asking for help on a few words or a sentence is fine, but asking someone to translate an entire introduction for you, which you then pass off as your own, is not a good idea. The problem with what you're proposing is that your English introduction, represented in Japanese, has a number of non-basic grammatical patterns and sentence structures in it.
If you're looking for a pen-pal and you don't know much Japanese, you need to find someone who knows English; it's not going to work any other way.

Try something simpler within your Japanese boundaries.

I hope no one has done this thread before. But I would like to be able to describe myself or at least know a site where I can find some adjectives. If anyone is up to the challenge, try this. For example. . . I would like to translate--> "I am a friendly guy that enjoys talking to anyone. I really can't help but smile, it's my favorite thing to do. I play the guitar and have dreams of becoming a musician. However japanese interests me because it sounds so beautiful. Lets be friends! Will you teach me?" If anyone could translate this into Romaji, that would be awesome.
OK here it is in romaji;
"I am a friendly guy that enjoys talking to anyone. I really can't help but smile, it's my favorite thing to do. I play the guitar and have dreams of becoming a musician. However japanese interests me because it sounds so beautiful. Lets be friends! Will you teach me?"
Hope that helps
