There are horror stories about every payment system, but I don't think Netteller is a bad system. The problem is that you're trying to do something quickly with Netteller, which is not its strong point. Also, your complaints are that its security measures got in the way, but I would much rather deal with a company that is going to be zealous when it comes to security, rather than some company that would play loosely with my personal details.
The fact that they had a human involved in looking at your mother's account is a very positive aspect, not something bad.
I know you're upset with them because it is not a simple process, but try to look beyond that to understand why they do those things. They have no idea who you are. For all they know, you're a scam artist looking to steal money from someone, and your repeated attempts to get access to money quickly is a warning signal for them.
Just relax, get your account set up properly, and fund it with enough money for at least a week or two of playing. If you always keep extra money in the account, you will never experience these problems.
