endor64432yVPN != no ads, there's no need for it on your setup if you get a cheapo VPS.
Also, OpenVPN eats up your phone battery, I don't think having it on all the time would be a good idea.
And I'm not sure how you plan to reach your RPi if it also sits behind your home router, you need to make it reachable from the internet through a static ip.
Afaik PiHole is just a DNS server with some filters included, so you just need to point your DNS settings to the device running it.
You might as well just install PiHole on your VPS and run it directly from there. Oh, and check out freemyip.org if you want a free domain name.
For your phone I'd recommend you to take a look at DNS66 (if you got an Android phone)
It can blocks domains with host files and does not consume too much battery as only DNS queries are manipulated
Also it's open source
Heard of Blokada?
