If they're not a blood relative, they don't meet the strict definition of 'ancestor', which by default IS blood ties. Personally in my own life I've come across people I consider closer to me than family members. Family sometimes doesn't like the kind of thing you're talking about, varies because people and families are different to each other, but I think you should be true to yourself and your own feelings.

Personally I think you should honour whoever you see fit to honour.

In many cultures elders aren't necessarily blood related, so your honouring an elder who is not blood would unlikely be frowned upon. Keep in mind that this is your journey and you can tailor it to suit you.

Here where I live in the West we even have the old concept of 'godparent'...

Yes, you can honor an Elder whom is not an Ancestor. It all depends upon how you feel about it inside. If it doesn't feel right to you then, don't do it.
