Where to Find Homebrew thats made by Official Sonys SDK?
Most of the homebrew is already here. -- Just search the threads.

thx for your answers!
Not both. Loading backups is not illegal. Loading software which you do not have a license for is illegal. The backup manager was created illegaly, so until a backup loader is coded without the Sony sdk, the steps are illegal, the end result is not. However, if deleted within 24 hours, it can be deemed as "for educational purposes."

Everybody would like to think that you can make legal backups, but you can not. I have a copy of Modnation Racers on my PS3 and a disc copy on my shelf, but the backup is still illegal. (Whether somebody will actually prosecute you for backups is another thing entirely.)

But you broke Sony copy-protection methods by Jailbreaking the PS3. And no, not all data is directly readable by any Blu-Ray drive. That's why you have to rip the games using the PS3 Blu-Ray drive.
