{Debian (>=Jessie)} AND { MultiMediaCard, SD Memory Card, etc}

I have a well used Lenovo R61 Thinkpad whose sole raison d'etre is to serve as a test platform for experiments which may spectacularly fail.

To quote a product description, it has:
  Card Reader
    4 in 1 card reader
    Supported Flash Memory
Memory Stick PRO, MultiMediaCard, SD Memory Card, xD-Picture Card

My local supplier has 32GB cards in stock. Not sure which of the above flavors, as I just asked him what he had available that were compatible with my hardware.

I'm pondering an application that could be accomplished with USB flash drives. It would be much "NICER" if that x GB were physically "inside" the laptop's profile.

My questions:
  1. Can Debian (and to what extent) make use of that storage?
  2. Can Debian itself reside on that medium?
I'm thinking in terms of changing look/feel/function/capabilities/...
     of the machine by swapping media before "power up".
[The BIOS *DOES* have some capability to specify precedence of boot devices.] 3. Any Debian people using this capability who would care to comment?
     ["off list" replies fine]
