    You can add....

    any card that supports the SDXC or SD format, that is my understanding. About tricking out Windows to boot from a SD card, maybe you have to check the Forums archive. Seems to me as a question asked a fair share of times....:D

    As far as I know no standard SD card will get larger than 128gb. As far as I'm aware your MBP should have no trouble reading that.

    In any case, I'm not sure I would really want to have an OS bottlenecked by the read speed of an SD card reader and I don't believe bootcamp will allow anything but a direct harddrive partition however you MIGHT be able to create a bootcamp partition as usual and use something like Carbon Copy Cloner to clone it directly to the SD. Again, I've never tested and don't believe it would work (at least not well) but it might.
