comment How can a computer with dynamic IP work as a webserver?
DNS does not support port forwarding. A DNS server performs the sole function of matching DNS records to IP addresses only. No port information is exchanged between the DNS server and the client regarding the appropriate port to connect to. That is more a function of the app making the connection. It intrinsically knows which port to use depending on which service it is connecting to. If your ISP is blocking port 80 on their egress filter, then you will need to use a port that is not blocked. Most people use 8080 for that, but really any open port will do the trick.

comment How can I monitor all and any internet traffic from my home PC?
I have to agree with John on this one. A packet sniffer is going to give you far too much information for it to be useful in spotting the problematic connections.
