The currently supported plan for F1 2021 is a simpler and cheaper V6, with a twin-turbo (improves sound, currently single) with only MGU-K. This is also to lure back independent manufacturers (Cosworth has already talked about a return).

So WEC can keep the most technogically advanced series in the world title... with the least amount of cars.

No. If that was the issue the same factory wouldn't have managed to make their Super GT cars worse by taking out the hybrid system. They have inexperienced staff because the only high level program that R&D center has really had since leaving F1 last time was the NRE, as well as also having to deal with some awful decisions McLaren made while the team was tanking and the company was changing.

Porsche has the advantage that they've gone through a lot of the pains of returning to top level motorsport already but it's hard to say how the competition level compares between WEC and F1.

That type of engine and hybrid system sounds familiar, and it's not run by Porsche but their rival...

It is the same as in the 80s when they produced the TAG engine, they had been for more than a decade building turbocharged engines.
uhhh what

Honda has been building hybrid road cars since the early 00's, starting with the Insight, then the Civic and Accord, and the CR-Z.

While I'm with you on the questioning the Honda deficit in hybrid knowledge, but there's not much in comparison between the road hybrid systems and F1 style systems. Honda's problems were in part linked to the cooling limitations of the chassis early on so a few times they retired the car for that. And they've had their share of ICE errors along the way as well so it's been a tough road on the hybrid and ICE sides.
