Well you always have different options, of course you don't have to go with proxy chains. If you really need to, you could go get a loadable debit/credit card that doesn't require any personal information. Next go get a VPS that is linux/ubuntu (only around $5 a month for what you would need), and install proxy chains there to do all your dirty work. Just proxy when connecting to it, and keep your logs clean.
As for proxychains, you can easily go to hidemyass.com, and click on the link near to top that says IP:Port Proxies
From there, you are going to want to set it to socks 4/5 protocol, (for tor) with high anonymity and speed.
If you want to be even more secure, do both.
