First, I think it is an advantage that you have coming from a different culture and being trained in China as an architect. There certainly is a distinct advantage there. I am so impressed by your background.
I am not sure if it is difficult to get a tuition waver plus a TA or RA. However, I can certainly seek out that information for you if you are having difficulty reaching people in different programs in the US. Have you ever traveled to the US before? Are there any particular schools that you are interested in? Places/cities you might want to be in, that you would feel more comfortable in than others? Would you want to be in a big city versus a smaller one? I am trying to think what kind of atmosphere/environment would best fit your needs... Since it might be a big transition from China to the US... if you have family in one city, it might be good to be near them as well to help you through the process.
Although I am no expert in the field, I would say that you have a lot of advantages that make you a truly unique candidate for any program, considering your degrees and facility/knowledge of language.
Please let me know if there are any specifications you might have about where you might want to be so I might be able to help you further.
