Like through NeoGamma or CFG USB Loader?

EDIT: Do I have to change the SD card into a .WBFS format?

To answer your second question, no. WBFS as a file system is now obsolete. Now you can just put .wbfs format games on a NTFS/fat/32 drive in a folder called wbfs and they work the same. (compressed)

edit: using a wii backup manager. It just converts .iso files into .wbfs

So what kind of backup loader should I use for the first question?

Most backup loaders should support SD loading though you may have to edit a configuration file.

I'm pretty sure neogamma has an sd card loader. I use CFG myself so I don't know for sure. A quick google search tells me that it's possible "with most usb loaders and neogamma".

I tried NeoGamma, but they told me "No WBFS partition found". Although it may have been an old version.

Neogamma works only with WBFS partition.
USBLoaderGX doesn't support loading .wbfs games from SD.

Other Loaders should support FAT32 SD card for .wbfs files.
I never tried SD loading, so I don't know which option you have to change, but I guess in cfg, you set it in the configurator or there's an option to specify which device you want to list (USB or SD).
Take a look at all the settings.

yes, the CFG config file has an option what to read from - SD, USB or AUTO. I believe AUTO is the default setting.

That is true. Wii Backup Manager will separate it into two files, which will be recognized by your USB loader as a whole file on a FAT32 drive, making it possible to play games larger than 4GB.
