Question about English (US)

・My son finally became to study hard,which I had been insisting on.

"which" in this sentence means "to study hard" . But it doesn't fit after "insisting on" if I try to put.It must be "studying hard", not "to study hard".Is it okay for this kind of things to happen?

I haven't seen a sentence with a relative pronoun which is like that. All of the sentences with relative pronauns I have seen is like this below.

・I ate a meal which my grandmom cooked.

"which" in this sentence means "a meal" and it fit after "cooked" if trying to put.
