    Yes you can. Provided the files remain in the same spots relative to the old SD card everything will work.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Also make sure that the new SD card works ok (especially SDHC cards) before deleting any files off the old one.

    Yes partition your 16GB usb with two partitions one WBFS and the other FAT32 for apps etc. Use this guide http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-usb-hdd.html. It should explain all you need.

    Again check everything works before abandoning the SD card as some homebrew stores config files to the SD. Also if you want to boot homebrew off the USB either remove the Apps folder off the SD card or Remove the SD card.
