You can't trade assets in lieu of child support. Even if a sloppy judge signed the decree, your state's law would override it, and you would pay the support and lose the assets.

Beyond that, if you haven't legally adopted the child, there will be no support ordered.

So if i go ahead and adopt this child the court will make me pay child support even if the wife doesn't ask for it?

Unless there is some very powerful reason (such as, she has $20M in assets compared to you being penniless), then yes, support will most likely be ordered going by the state guidelines. An online calculator will tell you what the amount will be.

Even if for some reason the court allowed her to deviate the support to $0, it will always be open to a re-eval to guideline should she ask.
