    virtualisation, Not sure if in right place

    If you mean logging into Microsoft Azure from a web browser yes, If you mean hosting a virtual machine on a i3 - it would probably be slow. Support for XP ended in 2014. While I'm sure you can run it, I don't really understand why you would do this to play video games. Thank you.

    Apply cumulative Update to extracted Win10-ISO possible?

    NTLite is a good option for doing something like this (custom ISO). But yes @bassfisher6522 makes the most sense with that.

    what exactly is win 10 version 19033.1 anyway ?

    Is there Windows-own software to password files, folders, etc?

    VeraCrypt is just a fork of TrueCrypt since it was discontinued. Outside of BitLocker its probably going to be the most usable solution in this type of scenario thats not proprietary in nature.

    RAM detected by BIOS but not by Win10

    2GB RAM is extremely low. I hope this is not the case. Its possible the memory is incompatible with this system? Have you considered checking both chips in Memtest MemTest86 - Official Site of the x86 Memory Testing Tool Also, maybe save the bios when you see it updated to 24 (not discard...

    USB problem

    Both Windows 7 and Windows 10 support exFAT, FAT32, and NTFS, so no I don't see how thats possible.

    SSD Hot Swappable ?

    If it supports 2.5" conventional laptop size HDD it will fit SSD. The hot swap will probably work, but make sure the SATA controller on the back supports the throughput or doesn't slow down the drives.
