I Have A Few Questions About Installing Windows 10

I am going to be building my first PC in about a weeks time and I had some questions about installing Windows 10 (The OS I am Getting). Firstly, what is the exact process I need to go through to install it without a disc? Also, I know I will need some form of 4GB storage device for it, but don't have a flash drive of that size, would a portable hard drive (like a WD Passport) work? Finally, if I just purchase a key, can I use that key in the installer? Thanks in advance!

This is much more expensive than just buying a 35$ key and a flash drive though

Hate to break it to you buy there is no such thing as a legal and legit $35 key. Those are all dev keys and not legal to sell or buy.

This. Its not legal but you aren't going to have the police breaking down your doors or Microsoft taking you to court over it.

The issue with them besides being illegal is that they usually become deactivated within a couple months.
