    -SNEEK is a software-kit which emulates the NAND. Basically you can store a Wii-system on a SD-card or USB-drive and load it instead of your Wii-internal memory.
    -Triiforce is a channel-loader which can load channels from your real NAND or from the NAND stored on the SD-card/USB-drive
    -Triiforce MRC is a mod of Triiforce and is replaced by: http://gbatemp.net/t271798-mighty-channels

    Excellent job at explaining that.
    Also, what is the purpose of doing so?
    I currently load my WiiWare from my SD card, using the blue icon at the system menu.

    Does it do something similar?

    Using SNEEK or Triiforce is better than loading Wiiware from the SD card on system menu 4.0+. SNEEK/Triiforce use an emulated NAND, so the real NAND is not used at all. This is good because it reduces the wear and tear on the real NAND. In contrast, if you load Wiiware from the SD card, the entire game is transferred from the SD card to the NAND every time you play, which adds more wear to your real NAND.

    One quick question,

    Is it possible for me to install a custom theme on the Emulated NAND, so that there is no risk of bricking my Wii at all?

    Since it is not actually running from the System Memory;

    I was just wondering.

    Can someone clarify?

    Use ThemeMii to install themes to your emulated nand.

    A sound plan. Thanks mate.

    Is there any chance of bricking my original Wii SM ?
    Or is it completely independent?

    If you have bootmii/boot2 only needs to boot boot0,1 and 2
    or if you have BootMii IOS it needs the wii SM
    But the nand is in the SD-USB so if you dont touch your original SM there is no risk

    It's absolutely independent of your wii system menu. Remember what nand emulation is: running your wii from an external hard disk instead of the internal one (the nand). At worst, you could "brick" the menu on your external hard disk, which means you have to delete those files and start over.

    Excellent;

    If something actually did brick, I could just format my SD over, and start it over again.
    Sounds like an amazing piece of software.

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    Or you could backup your stuff if everything is running fine.

    That is also a great idea. I already have a good NAND backup of my Wii console, and it is saved at multiple locations to ensure it is not lost.
