I’m afraid you need to get a police certificate from your home country. You should go to the local police station in your home country to ask for the police clearance certificate. If you cannot go back to get it in person, you can ask your family to get it on your behalf.

Do you mean you want to extend one month stay duration of your X? It is impossible to extend the validity of the X, for example, an X is issued on Feb 1, the last entry date for entry is May 1, the validity refers the period 3 months from Feb 1, 2012 to May 1, 2012.

On the other hand, X holder should apply for a residence permit within 30 days after arrival, you should hold a residence permit now if you have studied for a period. If the expiry date of residence permit is approching, you can apply for a tourist L one week before the expiry date of your residence permit, generally speaking, the local exit-entry administrative department of public security bureau will issue foreign students a tourist L with 30 days stay duration at most when the study will over, it gives time for them for packing and preparing to leave on time.

I am afraid you can't get a tourist visa to Vienna for a few days while in China because you don't work or reside in here.
