:what about asian vine snakes? are they a good beginers species, picky eaters and can they be trained to eat mice?

I'd say Asian vine snakes (I'm assuming you're speaking of A. prasina) don't make very good beginner rear-fangs. Well, I suppose they could...as their bites are not dangerous, however they are most certainly specialist feeders. I've heard of VERY FEW that would eat mice, but it is possible I suppose. They are very pretty snakes though and can make attractive display animals. If it's vine snakes you like, I'd say go with one of the South/Central American species (Oxybelis sp.) as they will eat mice, or at least they can be switched to them. They are also a lot thicker in body than the Asian vines, and get a bit larger. Just food for thought anyway.
