Shouldn't the test provider be able to answer all these questions?

Please check this page (spoiler: Linux not supported): https://education.oracle.com/oracle-exam-prep
I doubt you will be allowed to hide part of your ID or wear a hat (and I doubt you will be allowed to do this when you need to be identified, e.g. when crossing the country border)
If you are not comfortable providing your personal information to the proctor you have the option not to take the test.
But as Tim suggested, better to check with Oracle directly.
