You may want to try a little honesty. Google was a little over zealous several years back with the instant life time ban. First ask nicely for reinstatement. After all it's been several years.
Save your breath... A little honesty with Google will get you nothing.
Start fresh with everything new, so that nothing can be traced back to the banned account and make sure you don't do what you did to get banned in the first place.
