Venus doesn't produce any light or heat of its own. None. So you could put it in orbit as close as our moon and all that would happen is tides on Earth from Venus' gravity would tear us apart. No matter how close or how far you put Venus, it wouldn't provide any light or heat at all. You don't think Venus is glowing from its own heat and light, do you...?

The problem is that Venus doesn't produce any light nor heat...

Venus can never produce enough heat to warm the Earth and it doesn't produce light at all. The light that we see Venus with is reflected from the Sun not locally produced on the planet. The heat it has is due to geological activity within the planet. This is nowhere near enough heat to radiate another planet. This idea is ludicrous.

:you remove the sun and Venus would freeze over. The light you see from Venus is reflected sun light.

Uh.....without the Sun Venus would be just a couple of degrees K above absolute zero. So you could be standing on it and your body would still freeze solid as granite.
