I take it you're using Debian, right? Sounds like just installing the proper drivers to me. I'm pretty sure the nspire is fast enough for it, after all there's a native extension that works over wifi.
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

No, it requires USB 2.0 which is a PITA to get working. It's possible with the USB OTG module, but it has its own issues, it only works sometimes.

Can you point me to a wifi module that would work with the Nspire?

AFAIK the Ralink 20XX chipset familiy should work. I know for sure that the 2080L works, that was discussed earlier in this thread.

How do I change the font? And what is the smallest font? On my raspberry pi I changed the font to a 4x6 one by adding this to the kernel cmdline: "fbcon=font:MINI4x6"

You can select the avaiable fonts when configuring your kernel build.

Like here,
but use the kernel source from https://github.com/tangrs/linux, nspire branch.

Isn't that the new kernel without USB support?

No, the DTB kernel is on the nspire-dt branch.

I have debian and lxde installed on my calc, and startx brings up the GUI, but all the inputs die, I can't move the mouse or switch to the console.
