Thanks for your questions and good evening.
Lets' go through your questions.Here are the requirements and reference.
Is it legal for a Illinois resident, without a real estate license, to become a licensed real estate salesperson in Wisconsin, without holding an office there?
Yes you have to complete the educational requirements, and pass the exam.
See above requirements.
After becoming licensed in Wisconsin, would I have to hold an office there and hold a real estate license in Illinois as well?

The other way works too here you can obtain Illinois license first then there is reciprocity.So you can get one then in Wisconsin if this is easier for you.
Do I have to be licensed in Illinois? I just want to be licensed in Wisconsin and not Illinois?
No you do not. Here is your last question.Do I need a sponsoring broker to take the exam and apply for a real estate salesperson license in Wisconsin?\
No you do not for a real estate license.
The broker requirements are on the reference I gave you for Wisconsin.
