I need an advise, I live and pay my taxes abroad and one of my websites operates in US and serves ads on in US. Can I set up my payments in US dollars to be direct deposit to my bank abroad? How would I set up tax info? Currently my tax info is my SSN.

You need to talk to an accountant in the country where you reside. Someone might be able to answer your questions here, but I for one would definitely never trust any financial or tax information I got on a forum.
My websites are operational in other countries, but revenue is revenue; I am subject to the tax policies of my country and my state.

My understanding, which may be imperfect, was that you just join the program in your own country rather than the one where the site is hosted. G will serve ads appropriate to the visitor's location not yours.
I am assuming that you want payment in your own currency and into a bank in your own country.

My understanding, which may be imperfect, is that your country of domicile is all that matters. You would need to sign up to the adsense program in the country where you live. The ads that are served relate to the visitor's location not yours or the site's.

I have done exactly what you described, but I created my account 10 years ago. A few years ago, they changed the dollar amounts to my local currency, but I'm still registered as an "individual" with no tax-payer ID associated with the account.
