Is it possible to determine the hosting of a domain provider using Whois services? From which hosting company was this or that domain purchased? And another question: can I, as a site owner, hide information about myself and the hosting where my domain is located?

Whois gives only superficial information. At least if you register a site purely for yourself. If you use the site for commercial purposes, then you will have to provide more information. With the help of the service, you can find out where the domain was registered (received a domain name), whether there are mirrors (language packs), IP address, lease term and expiration date of the paid period of time. As I said, if the server is used for commercial use, then the owner indicates his contact details (at least email).
