Seriously, if Sony had something like this in mind when developing the PSP, and if they did something like this, the first place to get to know about 'how to' is teh manual.
I knew I should have gotten some sleep

Just reverse those... RAM is used logically by the OS and CPU to cache data they need to access (randomly ) many times per clockcycle. So it's not physically stored, whereas the data stored on a hard drive is written to the disk itself by causing small indentations on the disk in order to represent binary data (1s and 0s).

As for memory on a PSP... they have problems with their power supplies anyway, so adding more RAM or storage space will sap the battery faster.
