    first, you'll have to convert those iso to wbfs
    http://www.wiibackupmanager.co.uk/
    use wiibackupmanager
    you can also download them as wbfs themselves.
    then put them(the resulting folders with the wbfs files) in a "wbfs" folder in the root of the storage device and use usb loader gx to load those wbfs

    yes, but it will work the same way.
    in that case use cfg usb loader, but you still have to place the wbfs the same way

    what?
    no need for that.
    the card may be formatted in fat32 and the games are located in the wbfs folder

    Use Multi Mod Manager,
    Go into IOS Manager

    After that you're are able to check your IOS Versions, and IOS's.

    Yes. You're not required to have them on the SD Card, the WAD(s) will install on the System which means no matter what it will load the SNES9x channel. Unless you have uninstalled the WAD from the system by deleting it through the Wii Settings, or Multi Mod Manager Wad Manager.
