    So about two years ago I bought a DSi XL from my cousins and I like(ed) it and so now I want to get some mods on it (just like my vWii) and I wondered if it's possible without a Flashcart and ONLY with a SD(HC) card?

    Not anymore. It used to be, but you had to buy a game from the DSi shop. Unless your DSi has points left over, it's impossible.

    I mean ONLY with a SD(HC) card, nothing else (besides from a pc, and some other stuff).

    Not possible.
    Open the DSi shop and check if you have points. If you have enough to purchase Sudoku or fieldrunners, then maybe.

    dont get the cheapest. they arent very good. get a r4i-sdhc, theyre great and constantly roll out updates. at the most, you pay about $18-$28 depending on if you get a memory card with it

    Not completely sure, but check nds-card.com, gbatemp's official sponsor and generally the cheapest seller.
