Please be precise: The _hard disk memory_ probably isn't enough.
You need to either shrink one of the Linux partitions, or remove
one entirely.

The term "system memory" usually refers to RAM which you have
plenty of, and FreeBSD doesn't need much RAM to work. :-)

That is possible, but not a good idea, because you want to boot
FreeBSD from the disk (with "disk speed"), not from USB stick,
which has terrible I/O performance. (Not that it's impossible,
but it's a very _very_ bad idea.)

No. That would be a bad idea.

That would be very much trouble.

Why don't you just remove one of the Linux installationy you have?
You already said that one doesn't really work at all - so remove
it. Keep the one you're currently working with. Zero risk.

As I said, it would work, but the performance and usability will
definitely be bad, and _booting_ that installation would be a
massive problem because the FreeBSD boot media already has one
active partition - the one the installer boots from.

So to summarize again:

Shrink or remove one of the Linux installations, then install
into the free and unallocated (!) disk space.
