Thank you!
Ok, so for the street with no name I use the tag "noname=yes".

Then for the house number I can use the addr:place tag (why I don't 
find/see it before?):


But if I want to use a relation to do this (don't want to type 
addr:place for every housenumber, because errors are possible!) what I 
can use? In the wiki page of the addr:place I find a mention "If number 
of house belongs to some existing object, we can create a relation and 
include to it houses with role house and object with role object." How 
to do this type of relation? Or maybe this have nothing to do with house
