Being that you're not in the US, you would have to import the stock from the US and then send it back on a per order basis, so hard to imagine any margin left at all after thos expenses, plus you then have the drama os strorage.
So you're really limited to either using a fullfilment service in the US of your choice or dropshipping products direct from suppliers. You're location and intended market location makes it quite difficult to see any other way.

For example, their address, not yours and so on.
Now if they still exist that you have to have a tax id, then you should be able to use a tax id from your country, it won't need to be a US one.
In regards to payment, being an interantional sale on a new account, chances are thay they will only accept a wire transfer. Companies are very hesitant to accept credit card payments from intenational customers on brand new accounts due to the possibilities of credit card fraud on the transaction.
