Like what maidump does.
Yes there is:
1. make a copy of that vpk and rename it to mini.
2. open the mini vpk and delete the big files(usually +100 mb).
3. copy the mini vpk to the ps vita and install it.
4. next you copy the big files that you deleted from the normal vpk to the game folder in ux0:app/
5. launch the game.

Is there another non complicated way? Like just downloading an app and install vpk files through said app

-Extract the VPK on your PC (its just a zip file, associate it with winrar, 7-zip etc)
-Copy the folder with all the files to UX0: on the vita
-Browse to it in vitashell, press triangle and choose More | Install Folder.

I think theflow introduced this method (which just moves the contents of the folder rather extracting them from a vpk archive) about vitashell 1.5 or so. No need to use maidump or other tools.

Can VPK's or Game folders be installed via USB?

u could try extracting the vpk, placing the title id folder in the app folder on ux0, then rebuilding the database or refreshing the livearea within vita shell. I'm not sure what else is involved, but u could try that.
