    Should I get a SD, SDHC or SDXC ? What is recommended ?

    What is the recommended capacity ? 32GB or 64GB ? (I do not put my games on the SD card, I use an external HDD)

    It really shouldn't matter. Pretty much any size works in homebrew, though you may have some hiccups using it in the System Menu.

    You can have the apps and the games in the same HDD, i have mine in that form and everything works fine, the only times i use a SD is when i want to load Brawl mods.

    For SD cards, for ensure you can use all of the avaliable homebrew apps it's recommended 2 GB maximum (normal SD, not SDHC or SDXC).

    For USB HDD (Hard Disk Drives), the size doesn't matter (i think)

    Most updated homebrew apps can support at least SDHC, most can support greater sizes than that too. I don't know of too many apps that only work with SD, and chances are most of those are old apps you shouldn't be using anyway.

    The only modern relevant use case I can think of for using an SD card over SDHC or SDXC is that Action Replay discs on the GameCube can't recognise HC or XC cards.

    Modern homebrew supports the more modern formats - just remember that Windows doesn't like formatting anything 64GB or bigger as FAT32, so use a third-party tool to format large devices as FAT32 with 32k clusters.

    Unless you're still staying in an old version where SDHC is not supported, it should be fine regardless of the type. although normal SD could be preferred in some usecases, SDHC should be as fine if you're using relatively new homebrews and softwares.
