I want to use RHEL for server purpose, but i can't afford it, i would like to know if it's possible to run RHEL without license(that means without support) but still getting the certificates and the updates?

I was also thinking on CentOS, but still not sure because of the updates and the certificates... Also i'm considering fedora server, but, my very first option is RHEL.

Running RHEL without a license is what CentOS is for. It is very close to the corresponding RHEL release, including update channels, packages etc. but doesn't have support.

If you don't have a license for RHEL you cannot get the package updates.
