    Yeah you'll need to switch the USB ports.

    Softmod is more homebrew friendly, since I'm not sure how easy it is to boot dols from a wode.

    Hardmod allows Gamecube games from USB. Which is the main reason to get a wode really.

    The only reason to get a wode is to run gamecube backups on your wii. Without wode you can only run wii games by softmoding.
    So if you dont care about running gamecube games in your wii then dont get a wode.

    Letterbomb is just a way to boot a dol, so the the final result is just the same as any softmod. So you can play from USB.

    I forgot to mention before. You can't play normal wii/gc games (actual discs) with a wode. You could softmod beforehand and backup all games you have to USB so you can still play them.
