How many players from the defending team are permitted in the 18 yard box during a goal kick?

Eleven. However, the goal kick is not properly taken until it is kicked from within the goal area (six-yard box) directly out of the penalty area (18-yard box). If the ball touches any player, including defenders, before it leaves the penalty area, then the goal kick must be retaken. If the referee decides that the defenders are wasting time by intentionally preventing or making difficult the proper execution of the goal kick, the players may be cautioned for delaying the restart of play.

If the offense is taking a shot at the goal how many people is allowed in the goalie box?

This depends on how the shot is being taken and what this "goalie box" is. If this is a penalty kick, the only players allowed in the penalty area (the larger of the two rectangular areas or "boxes" that surround the goal) are the goalkeeper, or goalie, and the player taking the kick. If this is not a penalty kick, there is no limit to the number of defenders anywhere near the goal. These players still cannot use their hands though and if someone were to block a shot with their hands, they may be red carded, or removed from the game. I hope this answers your question.

What box is the 18 yard box in soccer?

The so-called "18-yard box" is properly called the Penalty Area. It is 44 yards wide (left and right) and 18 yards deep (from the goal line toward midfield, and the origin of the nickname). The Penalty Area contains the Goal Area (the "six-yard box") and the Penalty Mark (12 yards from the center of the goal, or halfway between the edges of the goal area and penalty area lines). Attached to the Penalty Area is an arc (the "Penalty Arc") that forms that part of a 10-yard circle from the Penalty Mark which lies outside of the Penalty Area. This arc is not part of the Penalty Area; it just indicates where players cannot be during a penalty kick.
