If so would this work for the US?
I think you make it too complicated - registering a car in the US is easy, you just get a us license, requires you to show current license and pass a couple of tests, theory and practical as there are a a few differences between US and Europe, parking on hills, right turn on red light etc. Then you register your US based and bought car in whatever state you are in - most states doesn't care about proof of address.
AFAIK you cannot get an aussie license online... and for registering a car in Europe I am sure you need to be registered as resident (not citizen) in the country you want to register it in.
And no driver license required to register car in Europe - only in the US
