I set up a flight plan but want to start it from a hover rather than the initial launch site to avoid obstacles in the launch area. Is it possible to have the Anafi already in the air and hovering before initialing a flight plan?

My understanding is if you set up a flight plan and launch the Anafi it will head straight for the first waypoint. In this case it would fly right into some trees. I would like to fly it manually to a spot away from all obstacles so that there is nothing between that point and the first waypoint.

You just fly out near your starting point so there are no houses / trees / flagpoles between your Anafi and the starting point of your Flight Plan and then run the plan.

Yes you have understood how it works 100% correctly.
