I hope not getting the account banned because of this microg mess n shit.
While this is technically possible, it is in Google's best interest to not ban your account. Also I don't think there ever have been cases of people ever getting banned from Play Store because they used a 3rd party app to download.

Some 3rd party stores even come with dedicated built-in "anonymous" accounts so that you can access the store without using your own credentials, good examples are Yalp Store (original, discountinued) and Aurora Store (forked, actively maintained).

Testing Aurora right now. btw, is there any custom rom that can actually run DraStic correctly? I'm using Lineage 17.1 and it's always the same, crashes, slowdowns n stuff. Only stock roms seem to work well.

I used DraStick with LineageOS 16 with MicroG (they maintain a fork of LineageOS with support for microg), and it worked pretty well (aside from the switched screens glitch, which I was able to resolve by changing some settings). But I only tried 1 game - "Last Window: The Secret of Cape West"

It might be an issue with your mobile phone rather than the OS itself.

Where can I get the app? I don't have no gapps nor microg stuff.
Unfortunately you have to either wait for the DraStic team to open-source and release the app outside play store or use a different phone (or anything which can run play store) and use the play store to buy and install the app and then extract the APK.

You can also ask to developers to see if they are willing to give you an APK... maybe after donating a nominal amount.
Wasn't it supposed to release the source code in early April? developers really. I only care about the possible expansion and improvement of drastic. I do not mind paying for drastic the only thing I want that I can run the games better has you a lot and about the improvement of the save states and that they do not get corrupted

Give them some time, development work is often unpredictable and usually takes a bit longer than the initial estimation.

It is a good idea to complement save states with actual game saves. Save states are actually very complicated because they have to preserve all of the present state of the emulator, which is hard to do in a complex system.
