using the icloud photo option, can I make my phone store my photos and videos only on the cloud and not on device at all?

No. And the photo stream stores only 1000 and only for 30 days, I think.

You can get Dropbox or something like it, but I think you will still have to manually delete from your device.

Someone pls give a correct answer if I am wrong.

Or you could create Shared Photostream with 5000 limit each and no expiry

I duplicated all my Albums on Picasa and Shared Photostream like this so I have backup on 2 clouds ;)

Think of the cloud as a mirror of the iPhone. So if you have all your photos backed up then delete them off your phone it will delete them off the cloud (given it syncs that action).

And you have no actual access to them either.

For your needs I'd think Dropbox would be the best solution (maybe others I don't know). You could enable auto upload. Then upload and delete in large sums.
