It's possible I have done it without ID but you need to get a sympathetic exchange person and put on a confused tourist act. You might have better luck exchanging it at one of the smaller exchange places banks are pretty strict.

Yes,definitely have your passport at all times... If you KNOW / Trust someone who lives there, that has a bank account in the country already; they can do the exchange for /with you at their bank. Also most ATMs/Bancomats will take the usa debit cards and give you local currency, out of your checking account.
