Oh yes, this is quite common practice nowadays. I have actually installed Windows 8 onto a flash drive and used it as a separate operating system than the one on the hard drive, although I do not believe this is possible with Windows 7. However, installing from a flash drive is fairly simple. I have never done this myself because I have always had disk drives in all my computers, but here is a link to a simple to follow tutorial:

Yes, its possible. That is what we called as "USB Boot Installation". This are becoming popular today because some netbook don't have dvd/cd drive. I think there are tutorials in the net in which you can browse on how to do this. You can follow the steps provided. That is very easy especially if you are an computer enthusiast. Just browse the web using this quotes: "Windows Installation using USB/Flash Drive". Inform me if you have accomplish me..
