A PayPal account is a personal account. That means it needs a real person's name (one person) and that real person's SS#.
So, start by your or your friend setting up a PayPal account correctly.
If you want to have a business account you can use your personal name as your business name until you get a registered business name.
If you already opened a personal account with a fake person's name then you will have problems.
