It's all fairly easy, one question at a time would be better. I'll try to answer your questions.

Q: hbc but that doesnt seem to work everytime i try it the wii crashs

A: Sounds like it is out of date or something, just install the latest version using the zelda tp hack


Q: i have beetles rockband and it wants me to update my wii and last time i updated from 3.3 to 3.4 i saw alot of people on the forums saying they regreated the update.

A: not sure what your question is here, use waninkokos updater to update to 4.1, there are many threads here asking the question about updating to 4.1 just search in downloads under bios and firmware

Q: i see people talking about backing up thier nand? and something about bootmii and to protect yourself from getting bricked and backups etc..

A: Yes, you should install bootmii and create a backup of your NAND should somthing go wrong in future, you always have something you can re-install to potentially fix the problem. You can install bootmii at the same time as updating your homebrew channel using the hackmii installer

http://bootmii.org/download/

Q: usb-loaders?

A: You can backup your games to a USB device for loading without using the disk. You can setup a valid USB drive to work with the loader using WBFS manager. You will also need the hbc already installed to launch these

http://wbfsmanager.codeplex.com/

Q: how to load wad's & play them?

Use wad manager which you load by using the hbc again. You can start to search these now im sure using our search engine

Q: also if you don't have a chip how do you load the game after you have loaded the hbc via the twilight exploit?

As you know the hbc is a channel that installs on your menu. You only need to use the twilight hack once and then that will install the homebrew channel then you can launch it whenever you like without the need of the twilight hack again.

Q: what settings are you supposed to set in hbc etc...???

OK you I'm not going to answer this, you need to stop ranting and try some stuff out. You already know about 3 things but have not tried them yet. Bootmii, twilight hack, homebrew channel. The order you need to use these is twilight hack to install a usable homebrew channel then you can use the homebrew channel to try and install bootmii or you can just install them both at the same time seeing as they use the same installer. Once you have done that you can start installing wad files using wad manager and other homebrew which the hbc allows you to use.

You need to setup your SD card with applications, from the wiki:

Quote 
Configuring Applications

In order to make an application appear in the Homebrew Channel, the following steps must be taken:

   1. Make a folder on the root of your SD card called "apps".
   2. In the folder "apps," create a folder for the application (for this example, ScummVM will be used).
   3. Copy the files for the application into its folder (e.g. apps/scummvm/).
   4. Find the executable file (either .elf or .dol) and rename it to boot.elf (or boot.dol if it was a .dol file) if it is not already named that (e.g. apps/scummvm/boot.dol). If the app comes with these files, copy the icon.png and meta.xml files into this folder.

Now the application will appear in the Homebrew Channel. However, if the application did not come with icon.png or meta.xml, its appearance on the menu is ugly, and difficult to distinguish from other applications. To fix this, text and an image can be added.

You should install bootmii as boot2 if possible, it is safer than IOS install.

Yes you store the NAND backup on your PC so you can use it if you ever need to say you install something that will not allow you to load the main Wii menu, you can use your backup to roll it back to a moment in time when everything was working.

Use Waninkoko's updater to update to 4.1. It is not advisable to update to 4.2 at this moment in time but you can use the OneUp release of the shop wad to update your WiiShop to the latest version. Don't ask where you can find this, you will have to find it yourself using the information we provide.

Waninkoko's updater:

Yeah the only way you can delete them is with an app like AnyTitleDeleter. What do you mean by HBC doesn't work properly?
