    I will be a pilot. (a future desire)
    I want to be a pilot. (when I grow into an adult)
    I want to become a pilot. ( I will make efforts to qualify myself as a pilot)
    what is correct or more correct when it comes to grammar
    All are correct.

    another problem of mine

    got frustrated
    get frustrated

    are the two sentences correct. These are not complete senteces. See the explanation below.
    Forms of the verb get have been used with a following past participle to form the passive voice as you do using verb to be: So you can say:
    She got engaged when she was 19.
    or
    She was engaged when she was 19.

    I sometimes get frustrated with the kids.
    or
    I am sometimes frustrated with the kids.
