I got my self a HTC Inspire 4g today. I have some questions.

1. is there any way to unblock the installation of apks not from the market? I'm not asking how, just is there a way,

2. Is there no portrait in the menu?

That is about it.

1) Go to Settings -> Applications. Check off the box for "Unknown Sources".
2) You mean background on your homescreens? You can change the background by selecting any photo on your phone and setting them as your background.

Sideloading works fine. I did it myself with the Sideload Wonder Machine.

Best option, however is to follow some hacking instructions to get it rooted, but instead of installing something like Cyanogen (I personally didn't like it as much as the stock ROM) install a modified stock ROM like this one: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=961406 Been looking for a newer version though, since that one is apparently not up to date.

but you can only sideload when connected to a computer with the sideload wonder machine

the point of rooting to get sideloading is to be able to use the amazon app store or *snip or just download some random apk off the web and installing it, from your phone

I would strongly suggest getting a ROM not based on HTC Sense if you intend on gaming. All HTC Sense ROMs can't sync up with Wiimotes and use them as controllers.

This is a fact I just discovered today.
