Well, they're free. So just pick one at random, and try to sign up via
Tor. Repeat until success. Then create a test page, and try to upload
with FTP via Tor. Repeat until success. That's what I would do, anyway.

That is a very complicated question. See the thread on SSH, for example.
As long as Tor has been properly configured for DNS lookup, any app that
has a SOCKS5 option is probably safe. However, complex apps that use
multiple protocols in the background (such as BitTorrent) are not safe,
except perhaps for highly expert users. If in doubt, use Wireshark to
test for leaks. If you're in a hurry, your best bet is to use Whonix.
Anything configured by default is probably safe, and the documentation
is excellent.
