How can I get an API key for doing 10K daily requests, without registering an application? Because I only use a script for my Social Network analysis project.

Registration is quite simple; for 10k requests per day, you don't need fancy authentication stuff or a Stack Apps post for the app; just having a key suffices. See the documentation about Throttles.

The only option I know of (but would recommend against) is to use a key of an existing app published by someone else. You can use the ones from the official mobile apps; I've listed them here.
