The Discourse™ has moved onto Anarcho-Laws, so let me address something: laws, being documents which decide what uses are violence are legitimate, are not compatible with anarchism. But to simply state this and nothing else is completely unhelpful.
A stateless society means a society where nobody has a monopoly on the legitimate use of violence. This means that the use of violence will be determined by all individuals (whether they band together or not). No section of people will have an elevated legitimacy of violence.
What this means is all concerns about violence will only be determined by our judgments of what is right and wrong. These are questions we do not have to grapple with normally. This is the un-alienation of questions of morality, which, today are completely irrelevant.

If you're an anarchist but not a communist, it kinda seems like we read different theory.

Cooperation between people is founded on a real material community that distributes according to need and denies nobody the basics of life. Without this, there can be no talk of coop.
In places in the world where small, individual craft/cottage manufacturing persists on a wide scale, this can function, but that place is not industrialized nations, which definitionally have abandoned this mode of production on a wide scale.
If you believe in social, common means of production like factories and workshops, but you believe in people keeping all the individual products of their labor, well
