Note that if you use a local Mac computer then you can develop with the iOS simulator which does not require an Apple developer account.

Can I develop without an Apple developer account with a real device using B4i-Bridge:
1) if I have Mac Host builder ?
2) If I have local Mac computer ?

No.

If you have a local Mac then you can develop with the simulator without a developer account (you will not be able to submit your app to the app store without an account).

A follow up question:
Using a local Mac with the simulator how can other users install the app? Can it be distributed from a private server?

Pretty expensive to pay 99$ if you want to distribute a free app. Can several users share a developer account? I know that you can select private or company developer account. Registering one company account you could probably let several user use the same key and distribute under the same name.
