Is it possible to use a flash drive as storage all the time?

sorry let me write it again. Since I have a 64gb SSD can i use a flash drive to help me keep extra files such as games since it would run out quick with 64gb.

Also can i delete Iphoto, garageband, imovie, ilife, printers and dictionaries if i dont need them?

You should probably edit your original post and try to clear it up a little.

I think you're asking if you can leave a flash drive plugged in all the time.

Yes, you can. Flash drives have a limited number of times they can be written to, so eventually it will need to be replaced.

If that isn't what you're asking, try asking again with a little more clarity.
