Is it easy to install stuff on Amiga computers nowadays? I mean, if you have no original copy of softwares/games, can you download them directly from the Internet or transfer them through certain means such as USB ports? (although i bet they lack USB ports, since they're so old lol)

Well, AFAICT the amiga used an IDE-like interface for its hard drives, so it wouldn't be terribly difficult to adapt that to CF cards and use another PC.

There are USB solutions for Amiga. For later models (1200/2000/4000) they are a viable option. Older models however require some rather tricky hardware modding. So over all, IDE interfacing is the better (and cheaper) alternative on these machines.
