VirtualBox comes with basic USB support, extension pack provides USB2.0

When trying to install the extension Pack, I get the VBoxPuelMain error, but without this and following the instructions in the handbook, my guest OS's don't see any USB devices (Nor do I see them in preferences of VBox)

You have to enable usb in machine preferences.
