I had hoped for other, more experienced self-admins to care for Tamar's
questions. My theories about "deb file:..." in sources.list are below.

If the ISO would be on DVD, i'd try what
  man sources.list
says about "URI SPECIFICATION" with type "cdrom".

Since the ISO is on a USB stick, then i'd try type "file". I understand
that the path after "file:" should point to the directory with
subdirectories ./dist and ./pool . That would be the root directory o
the mounted ISO on the stick.
The squashfs seems to contain no pool.

Assumed that the Live ISO is mounted at /mnt/liveiso i'd try:

  deb file:/mnt/liveiso buster main

Have a nice day :)
