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.

How a penalty kick is taken and where the players stand in soccer?

The ball is placed on the penalty spot, which is 12 yards from the goal line. The Goalkeeper must stand on the goal line, and is not allowed to move forward until the kick is taken and he attempts to save it. The player who is taking the kick can stand anywhere they want as they will usually have their own run up. The referee blows the whistle and the player runs up and tries to score and the keeper tries to save it. If the penalty was in normal time the players are allowed to try and score the rebound, in a peanlty shootout they are not allowed to. All other players must stand outside the box, and are not allowed to enter the box until the kick is taken. If the players enter the box or the keeper moves off his line before the kick is taken, the penalty must be retaken, at the discression of the referee.

Can a defender stay in the box when a goal kick is taken?

Yes, there are no rules stipulating that defenders are not allowed in the box when a goal kick is being taken. Case in point: Some defenders are known to take goal kicks for the goalkeepers, and given that the ball is in the box for the goal kick, the defender is already in the box along with the goalkeeper whilst taking it.Do take note though, that the ball must be passed out of the box from a goal kick, i.e, the goal kick cannot be passed to a teammate (defender or otherwise) who is also in the box.
