You didn't buy your first Bonsai. You bought a jade plant that was cut shorter to make it look like a tree.

Your plant can become a Bonsai with patience and some work. For starters I recommend you pot it in a bigger pot and let it grow for a few years, take it outside during warmer months. Don't worry about styling, as your plant cannot be style into bonsai yet. More info about jade bonsai:

To grow fast, i think. What do you recommand to do?
I don't think i understand you clear. These species, the three that i have, it is good for a bonsai or not? If not, what do you recommand for a beginner as i am?
Thanks

I think it is not very suitable for beginners growing them indoors. They will never look like a tree.
If you are really into bonsai, I recommend a local species, that you can keep outdoors, that is suitable for bonsai.
