Can you actually go from having zero hands to dangling people?

Practicing and taking your mind out of the box.
I don't have great hands but I have seen a ton of improvement in the last year from watching the youtubes and trying to get a feel for the process of a deke. Once I understand how the deke works, it's a matter or practicing until you can do it on command stationary and then half speed and full speed.
As someone else mentioned, creativity is a big one because a lot of quick stick moves and dekes happen BEFORE you have time to think about it. Getting your mind outside of the box helps with performing these moves on the fly and seeing what happens.
Then once you get the hang of a move, it's a matter of trusting your ability to do it when it counts without hesitation. Trust the defender will bite, trust the puck will be where it should be, trust that you can actually do it.
I promise you that if you wanted it bad enough, you would be able to learn. Obviously it would require a lot of work and maybe sacrificing some things to make time, but definitely doable.
