When you have a document approval process by multiple people I have always used the standard approval workflow provided with sharepoint (the 2010 template one).

As you know this one is based on the 'task' to collect the approved/rejected feedback and change the status of the file accordingly.

Has anyone done this workflow without the 'task' process?

In Microsoft Flow - there is a flow/action for "Starting an approval" which should offer you an alternative way to build an approval process


Yes you can do it by using custom list and add workflow. Also you can use impersonate steps to manage unique permission.
