I'm basically writing this up because there wasn't any updated info on this & so I can remember what I did haha
And you're done :D

If you want to play backup's of your games the newest & preferred method is using NoNpDrm https://github.com/TheOfficialFloW/NoNpDrm follow the instruction there to install the plugin & learn how to backup/dump your games.

If you have problems getting NoNpDrm to work with SD2Vita, this reddit post helped me with the config file:
Reddit said:
1) Download the latest release of the NoNpDrm Plugin.

2) Place it on the “ux0:tai/” (Normal MC) or “ur0:tai/” (sd2vita) folder in your console.

3) On VitaShell browse to “ux0:tai/” or “ur0:tai/”and open the “config.txt” file with (X)

4) Navigate to the “*KERNEL” line and insert 1 new line below it -On the new line insert “ux0:tai/nonpdrm.skprx” or “ur0:tai/nonpdrm.skprx” for sd2vita users

5) Restart your console with Vitashell TIP: Step 1 to 5 only need to be performed the first time you install the plugin.

6) To install games, place your NoNpDrm dump on the “ux0:app” folder of your console.

7) To install DLC, place your NoNpDrm DLC on the “ux0:addcont/[GameID]/[DLCFolder]” directory and the needed licenses on the “ux0:license/addcont/[GameID]/[DLCFolder]” directory of your console.

8) To install updates, place your NoNpDrm updates on the “ux0:Patch/[GameID]” folder of your console.

9) After you place all the desired files on the respective locations, go to VitaShell and open the (TRIANGLE) Menu on the Home Screen, select “Refresh Livearea” and wait for it to update the screen with your games.

10) PROFIT!!!

NOTE: For NoNpDrm games to save properly they must be mounted on a “ux0:” partition.

Misc plugins that I have installed (will update):

Well I want to have the SD2Vita as the location for Roms, ISOs and the PSPEmu. Music also because the Vita Music Player just shows ALL the Tracks when they should be in Folders, sectioned off.
Only problem is, I think I have some Games on the other 2 Cards I have that I dont have on my 64GB Card. Hope there will be a Vita2USB Adapter at some point

That's the YouTube tutorial I followed. Of course, that one assumes you have a Vita memory card.
Is it possible without one ?

Edit: note to self Duh yes it is possible that's what this thread is about, got confused by the previous poster.
