1. Question: ID explains nothing, because who created God then?
Answer: First of all, ID is not an argument for the existence of God, it is not natural theology itself, but just a scientific method that can lend empirical support for the truth of a premise in a teleological argument of natural theology (just like Big Bang theory is not an argument for God, but can support a key premise in the Kalam cosmological argument). But apart from that: asking "Who created God?" is a meaningless question, because God is by definition the uncreated first cause of everything contingent. God is eternal and necessarily existing, and thus could in principle not be created. If God were created he would not be God! The same cannot be said about the universe because the universe is clearly not necessarily existing but contingent (it could have failed to exist).
