I would like to know if there's a prestige class named "Chosen Of Mystra". I've read a lot about it in stories, but can't find anything in the rulebooks.
Is it a fictional PC only or is it described somewhere? If so: where?

It is from the Forgotten Realms campaign setting.
It is not a prestige class. It is a template. It is published in the campaign setting book.
In the 3.x Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (Greenwood, Reynolds, Williams, Heinsoo; ISBN-10 0786918365), there are some details about the Chosen of Mystra on p247. They are described as having:
While I am not opposed to characters in a FR campaign becoming one of the super-powerful residents, I would say that this is not a prestige class because you do not choose to be Chosen. I am no Realms historian, but I must assume Elminster was Chosen at birth (if not before), even if there was a "meeting with the goddess" moment where he may have been formally Chosen.
A campaign where a Level 1 wizard is Chosen could be interesting. I would play it with the character (and the player) not knowing they are Chosen, but occassionally noticing strange powers. Make them learn their abilities as they go, then at some plot-critical point let them know the truth.
Side notes: The FR Campaign Setting is a pretty awesome book, and worth finding for Realms fans. Also, I do not seem to have my Magic of Faerun book any more, which likely has more details.
