Is it possible to open a company and not have your SSN associated with it in any way? Or do I need to open a off shore shell?

You should consult an estate planning/business lawyer to help find a legal way to achieve your objectives.
These comments do not constitute legal advice. They are general comments on the circumstances presented, and may not be applicable to your situation. For legal advice on which you may rely consult your own lawyer.
It sounds like you are asking us how to illegally hide income. That is not what we are volunteering our time to do.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
Short answer: start a business (sole proprietorship). Check google for resources available to small businesses/start ups in Las Vegas (city or county website should help). Starting a business allows you to get a tax number (EIN, I think?) that you use in place of your SS #.
