I want to get a private bitcoin wallet. I read that some services have the wallet keys. This will not do. I also want to get wallets for litecoin, dogecoin, and other valuable altcoins. Where is the best and most secure way to do this? I download one software that said I would need to download over 100 gb of blockchain. This is too much just for a wallet address.

I cannot speak to alt coins, but there are various so-called "thin clients" that will get you what you want: Ability to send/receive cryptocurrencies and full posession of the wallet's private kets. For BTC the Electrum client is very reliable and widely used.

I was hoping for something that installs on the machine and manages the keys. This is good, tho. It gets me started.

I just downloaded and it works flawlessly. It's easy to use. Thanks for suggesting it. Will someone with a pile send me the smallest possible transaction as a test? Here are my new addresses. Pick whatever is cheapest, I suppose. Send me like a penny's worth of something.

Is there an easy way to send and receive anonymous payments in USD using anonymous credit cards? I know there are very onerous ways. I want to find something simple.
