Yes, the trick is called Casper. Google for USB LINUX CASPER or USB LINUX PERSISTENT to learn more.

Another option is Puppy Linux

I use ScPup32 myself, based on Slackware Current. For USB thumb drives, Unetbootin works nicely to put your chosen ISO file on the drive and creates the boot sectors.
Check out the Puppy forum for more information,
forum.puppylinux.com, there are many different Pups to choose from based on various distros (Ubuntoo, Debian, Slackware, Arch) and the forum can give you tips on how to get up and running.

Yes.

I needed to make such yesterday and used Etcher and an ISO from distrowatch.com to make a bootable USB drive.

You'll discover there are probably more ways to create this than what folk have written here.
