    You could from the GameCube's FAT32 PARTITION right?

    Huh? You need FAT32 (or exFAT if you're using Nintendont) to run GC games, too.

    That's what I mean, my USB stick is split 1/3rd FAT32 for GameCube, 2/3rds NTFS for Wii.

    If a file that I have is a wbfs file instead of an ISO, what should I do then? Would I still be able to do these steps or do I have to do something different? Just downloaded several games and realized they're all wbfs files.

    yes, just do it the same way.
    even if it's already in correct format (wbfs file), it may not be named correctly (for example "Mario.wbfs" instead of "SNMP01.wbfs") and following these steps will assure you that the file is renamed and placed to the correct and expected folder for the loaders.
    it just prevent user's errors.
    It can even split a file if it's bigger than 4GB. for example you might already have a "wbfs" file for Metroid Prime trilogy, but the file can be a single 4GB+ file, the program will take care of splitting the file in two wbfs files for you, as you can't just transfer it manually on a FAT32 partition without splitting.

    but you can of course do it manually, just be sure the format is correct, the game is good (not corrupted, which is checked by the tool while transfering), and i the correct folder.
    I think using the tool is easier and faster (it lists all games on both devices : PC one side, HDD on the other, with everything automated).
