-Yes, installing does work on every PS2.

-The ELF-File isn't 'put on disc', but the UDF-Filesystem-Descriptor is patched by the ESR-/Memento-Patchers.
2. Can I have ESR Run by itself as if i'm installing mcboot (By putting the .elf file in a disk and run it)?
-The ESRGUI or one of the ESR-'Mini-ELFs', are started from some other storage-medium (USB, MC).
-Yes you can start your patched backups with ESR.
If you have a way to start Homebrew on your PS2 (for example with a SwapMagic-'Coder-'Disc [those with an ELF-loder...]), you don't need to swap or anything of that stuff...
Yes, as stated above you can start it through uLE with the "OSDSYS"-Subprogramm, which is listed under the MISC-Pseudodevice within the uLE-filebrowser.
3. If i have mcboot installed on my MC is there any way to start it other than direct booting?
Hope that helps.
If i come up with more questions i will ask so keep an eye on me and thanks in advance.
