No - the boot image on a DVD is at a different location then on a
hard drive. (The USB key is seen as a hard drive.

No - it will want a F9 install media.

You can use a live CD from the same version. You can use the
instructions on installing from a hard drive to install F10.

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/install-guide/f10/en_US/sn-installing-from-harddrive.html

But I can not find the instructions to make the USB key boot into
the install image. If someone else does not have the URL, or
remember the instructions, you can use the directions for making a
bootable USB drive with the live CD using the install image from the
DVD. (<loop mounted DVD image>/images/boot.iso)
