I wonder whether I can submit this kind of website to domz.org or not?

If I can, so how to do it? Is there any detail information for my references?

I am looking forward to receiving you guys answers. Thank you very much.

There does not appear to be a reason that you can not have your site listed on domz.org.  You just need to go there in the catagory that best fits your site and submit it.  Then kick back and wait for their reviewers to review your site.  If approved your site will be listed.

The most common reason for rejection in DMOZ is that you selected the wrong category for insertion. Please make sure you have entered the correct category before you click the Add Link option.

Besides that, there should be no issues. Its also recommended to get yourself a Verisign / equivalent certificate attesting your authenticity beforehand so that you are not categorized as a fraudulent vendor.
