    Can I install Boot Camp on an external drive and boot to it? A quick Google search looks like nobody is doing it this way. But I won't have room for Windows if I partition the internal hard drive of the MBP.

    No. BootCamp only supports the internal drive.

    Yes you can, in boot camp assistant select the external HDD for installation. It need not be FW, it may be USB
