But cholesterol is considered to be a kind of fat?

I agree - best to get protein from foods, but you can get protein that is pea, soy, rice, hemp or whole grain based, so you can get protein powder that is 100% cholesterol free.

I have a hemp protein powder that I use occasionally, when I'm having recurring difficulty getting enough protein (though I'm getting better at getting it). It has no cholesterol.
I believe the low end of SP's range is also slightly higher that official recommendation's low end, to account for the help it gives in weight loss.

Do note if for some reason you ever need it, you may want to consider something like the Protein shots. It comes in a vial, is premixed and you toss it down like a shot [really with the taste it is a good idea to drink it that way. Some like it, I don't] and has no cholesterol.
I hope someone can advise me about Protein Powder and Cholesterol. I have been reading so many posts and articles but can't seem to find a direct answer.
I have high cholesterol and was amazed to see how much cholesterol is on protein powders. I hate to add extra cholesterol into my diet as I am trying to reduce the intake of it. I understand protein powders are derived from Whey, so am looking into soy or plant based protein powders. However not sure I want to mess around with soy.
