    Well a VCC can solve the problem of identity being disclosed when paying. As for the registrar, I don't recommend providing fake information and that's where you are vulnerable. If someone really powerful inquires about your identity, it might be disclosed by the registrar even if you have privacy protection.

    As for a hosting provider asking for your ID proof, there are several hosts who do not ask for your identity. So, that's not a real concern. If you want more security, may be get a private proxy for loggin into your admin, but that's insanely high security that you are asking for. Even a terrorist web master won't ask for that lol.

    Edit: Adsense..hmm... that's tough to get without revealing your identity.

    OP the biggest problem you have, is with the monetization with Adsense, you will have to use something else.
    I don't think a Viral nova type site would get approved, do they even use it on their site?

    Pay for your Domain and Hosting with Bitcoin, several companies accept it.
    https://ititch.com/ - Haven't used it, so it isn't a recommendation, just an example.

    Regarding getting ID's you can easily get some faked docs from Marketplace here. That solves half the problems.

    No, the website would be for German speaking crowd. But i think the hype is gone tho. A lot of different clones and the new Facebook algorithm makes it very difficult to get traffic. Read recently an article how the traffic dropped to 40%. I guess it was the right time to do it. Lets see.

    Whois protection is to keep the everyday Joe Internet Surfer from looking up your home address and phone number. If you're a legit business then you're actually not concerned about Joe Internet Surfer doing a Whois on your domain. Even with domain protection (Domains By Proxy, etc) LEO, a judge, or a high profile government official can get your identity. Remember, you're never anonymous, no matter how many steps you take to think you're anonymous. Here's a piece of advice...never think you can remain anonymous.

    You ask why do people use privacy protection on their domain. Here's one reason: so Joe Internet Surfer doesn't track down some college girl with a blog. That's one good reason to use Domain By Proxy (or others).
