I would like to run Apache behind NAT/firewall, but the firewall/NAT device is unaccessible (for me), so port forwarding arrangement may not be performed. Moreover, IP of the PC running Apache is dynamic....
I know what to do and how to penetrate through NAT with incoming connections to Apache, but it is a separate development......
If you know a third party ready solution for that please inform me.
Thank you in advance,

You can make a tunnel. e.g. a ssh tunnel trough the NAT. But the preformance is poor and you need a server / PC behind the NAT which one you can configure. A second issue is to keep the tunnel open when there are no requests.
