Is it true that my mom or dad can be my driving instructor when I do my behind-the-wheel training instead of a professional driver training school instructor like the ones they have at Imperial Driving School?

I don't know how to drive using a manual-shift. Will Imperial Driving School have an automatic-shift car available that I can use for my behind-the-wheel training?
Since you're enrolling in a Chicago Illinois driver training class, chances are good that you don't know how to drive either a stick-shift OR an automatic!  However, you should let Imperial Driving School know what your preference is before enrolling in their driver class.  That way you'll know for sure they will accommodate you.
I live out in the middle of nowhere. There are rural and mountain roads all around. Will Imperial Driving School teach me how to drive in BOTH rural AND city areas?

Most states have set the minimum age for applying for a learner's permit at 15 or 15 1/2.  However, some states do allow 14-year-olds to obtain a learner's permit.  You may want to contact the Illinois DMV or a Illinois-approved driver training school like Imperial Driving School to find out what the minimum age to drive is in Illinois.
Can I take Imperial Driving School's behind-the-wheel training course before taking a Chicago Illinois drivers education classroom course or online course?
