You should visit https://blogs.msdn.com/tomarcher/archive/2006/04/14/576548.aspx to know more about ReadyBoost. I think Tom Archer provides the best explanation of this feature.

No, for XP, you need to use programs like ebooster. But for Vista and above, you can use ReadyBoost to use a pen drive as RAM easily.

but one thing to be noticed here. if you have sufficient RAM, using pen drive as RAM won't help you much, and there won't be any increase in the performace, but the pen drive will be engaged. so better use it only if heavily required.
