This person's only way to immigrate to the US would be as a family sponsorship case and hence his/her sponsor would be responsible for paying the bills. But yeah, it would be pretty hard for a person that age without decent language skills to do very well in the US.

Most Americans who are fluent in English can't even succeed in the US. Most families find it hard to pay their day to day expenses even with both parents working full time.

No. The American dream is dead. Most live paycheck to paycheck. That means those who with skills, who are native English speakers, with 20 year careers.

No. No qualifications for any sort of job which might earn enough to support such a large family. Employers are extremely reluctant to hire anyone over 40, so you won't even get burger-flipper jobs. Not that such earnings are enough to support a single person.
Furthermore, since you won't complete a minimum of 10 years of covered employment before you turn 65 so that you can qualify for Social Security & Medicare, your sponsor must guarantee your total support, including health insurance & all healthcare, until you die & beyond - your final expenses, burial/cremation, funeral, etc. Your sponsor will have to be awfully wealthy to support you. If you needed a nursing home, for example, that will likely cost over $10,000/month.

It's very difficult to get a job at your age.

Depends on your definition of "succeed". Not get hacked to pieces with a machete by the neighbors? Most likely. Integrate into the society and become a productive member of a town? Probably not.

A 55 year old person with no experience and advanced degrees is very unlikely to get an immigrant visa to the US.
