Why did the fall of the Han Dynasty help Buddhism spread in china?

Buddhism is an interesting religion, but also how it "migrated" is also interesting too! Buddhism was actually founded by a young Hindu Prince in India. There is a background story to it, but I won't get into that. Once the Prince found enlightenment, he began the now-modern religion throughout Asia, and few parts in Africa, Europe, and even North and South America(s). Buddhism started near the Hindu Kush, just north of New Dehli, the now day capital of India, and it spread by messenger's. Messenger's told the story of the Buddha and helped people understand Buddhism. As it grew vastly in India, Hinduism and Buddhism were almost neck and neck. But the messengers of the Buddha thought, why don't we spread this to the rest of the world! So they did, through ships, walking, running, and riding, they managed to spread the word. Now, these messengers were able to make it to China because as the old messengers told the people, "new" ones would fall in and continue spreading. Eventually, while China's main religion was Confucianism, was vast and large, by the time Buddhism got there they were neck and neck, just like Hinduism and Buddhism. So in short, it really was like a migration. Sorry for the long story, but I hope that helps!

When did the Buddhism develop into a major religion in china?

I'm not sure but I believe Buddhism developed as a major religion in China when the Han Dynasty fell in 220. Chaos was spread all throughout China, and Buddhism proved to be popular in Southern China where it stressed learning and philosophy. In north china Buddhist monks became advisers to barbarian tribe rulers. The separation of northern and southern china caused Buddhism to spread throughout northern and southern schools. I hope this proves to be helpful :)
