I still have a device with iOS 4 and two with iOS 9. I can instal;l; apps just fine in iOS 9, including for most apps, the older versions that run on iOS 9 even when there have been updates to iOS 11. If an app no longer makes the old version available, that is because the *DEVELOPER* (not Apple) decided that.

No, you do not. You can setup an iOS device with no AppleID.

That is certainly not my experience.

Again, if an app won't install on an older OS it is because the developer of that application made that decision.
There are many valid reasons for a developer to make that decision, by the way, primarily not getting reviews or support requests from people running old versions, but also if changes to the back-end are no longer compatible with older versions. I'm sure other reasons I can't think of.
My main job is trying to come up with new and innovative and effective ways to reject even more mail. I'm up to about 97% now.
