    Yes.
    But you have to format the hard drive.

    Assuming your hard drive is FAT32, which you said it is, then you should be able to copy your apps from your SD card to your USB drive. The Homebrew Channel should load the applications off your USB drive without the need for an SD card.

    Bootmii still needs a sd card. Most applications are able to work without it. s(u)neek needs it as well.

    You can always backup the bootmii folder of your sd card to your pc and copy it over whenever you need bootmii again.
    Besides for taking a backup of your nand, I don't think it's used much for other purposes.
    Priiloader should work without a sd card. It uses the wii nand flash disk to store it's files.
