    Hello & welcome to the forum! :) Each of your questions is addressed below:

    A USB drive cannot be used w/ the stock iPad if your intention is to transfer files between the devices; the CCK (Camera Connection Kit) allows use of camera SD cards and USB connections but is specific to that use. Now there are some 'wireless' options - e.g. check THIS THREAD; now if you have a more specific question regarding your need to use a USB drive w/ the iPad, then let us know.

    PowerPoint does not run on the iPad; however, Keynote (a part of the iWork suite) can import PPT files - the app does not have the depth or power of a desktop version of Keynote or PowerPoint but is an option; other apps may exist that can be considered. As to using Keynote (or a similar app) w/ a larger screen, several possibilities are: 1) with Apple TV, the iPad can 'mirror' its screen to another one; or 2) an HDMI adapter and cable can be used; there are likely some other choices. Good luck! :)
