I tried making one without the USB drive and there was no reaction from the computer, like it was waiting for the USB. If there's a way to do it with DVDs there should be some instruction for it.

you need to have a minimum 32gig usb drive, or sd card. I expect you can back files up on dvd's as well as there is a burner.Also, I saw standalone backup storage drives in-store that stated they could be used as well.

You will need to be a little more specific. The Hp 2000 makes many sub-models. The most important things that I would compare are Screen size, RAM, hard drive space, HDMI included, numeric keypad, and processor speed/power. Also, I would look at the reviews of others who have purchased the laptop that you are interested in.

answer 2
The HP model ur looking at has a 320 GB Hard drive, this one has 500gb. The processor on this one is dual core (supposed to be a plus).

This one has Win7 64 bit home edition, the other has Win 8. But there's an option to upgrade this one to Win 8 pro later for about $15.
Take note the audio on this laptop sounds poor

This notebook uses the Intel HD Graphics with 128MB of dedicated graphics memory and support for Microsoft DirectX 10.1. It should be able to play Sims 3 without issue, though some games may not run on high detail settings.

On your desktop, there is an icon that says "Help?", double click it, and then 2 choices appear: Identity Card & User's Guide. Open the User Guide and there you go! If you want to put a copy in a place you prefer, then just save a copy once you open it.
