    You can use Bunjalloo to browse to the site and download the homebrew file to your card, but I haven't done this myself. You can also do this with DSLinux but you'd have to have slot-2 RAM which you didn't specify whether you had or not.

    The Nintendo DS only has a wifi transfer rate of 5-20 KBs. Meaning that to transfer larger files could take hours or even days to transfer them to your DS.

    DSOrganize has some downloadable homebrew, but like said before, the download times are incredibly long. Just use a computer.

    There are also a few FTP clients for the DS (DSFTP and CFTP are two that come to mind). But again, they are slow and unreliable.

    Not necessarily. DSLinux can download at up to around 100 kb/s, but it uses modified wifi code and I'm not sure that it can be applied to regular DS homebrew. Honestly I'm not really sure about this. All I know is that when downloading a file with the Links browser, it reports that it's downloading at a good 100 KB/s for at least a short while. With DSFTP and other wireless transfer apps, I generally get around 30 KB/s max. I agree though that this is generally too slow for large file transfers, and is mostly only useful for quickly testing a new homebrew app without having to shuffle cards around.
