Latin

Well, turns out trying to just piece together a partial sentence in Latin is harder than it appears.

What I want to write out is just a dependant clause.
the "As if I'm people" portion of "I'm acting as if I'm people" (like the phrase said whn anthropomorphizing something -- he's eating as if he's people)
But, I am trying to get only the dependant part (if it's possible)

Situation:
A: Saids statement
B: ... as if I'm people.

Though, a grammatically proper explicit subject (It is as if I'm people) or equivalent would work as well.

Unrelated question: Does anyone know of any good resources (physical books or online) that wouldbe valuable in learning Latin?
