    you can't play roms via usb/hdd, but you can have your legally purchased games there, if your console's out of internal storage

    I think so. BTW after modding vWii you can use SD cards bigger than 2GB.

    Not sure if they put any links there. Just don't use IOS's for Wii. Make sure it says vWii or Wii U otherwise your vWii will become permanently unusable.

    I think there is a way to get it to work on Nintendont but not sure about emulators.

    Wii u games are not that much bigger when extracted to play on loadiine. I have 30+ games on my 128gb sd and lots more room.

    vWii is the Wii Menu in Wii U
    Loadiine: backup loader of Wii U games
    Nintendont: backup loader of Wii games
