First, I have something of a silly issue. My PSP 3000 came with the usb cable, though it stated everywhere in all the paperwork and on the box that such a cord wasn't included and sold separately. Even stranger, it seems they gave me the wrong cord! It says it is still a mini-B 5-pin usb cable but it doesn't fit in the port on my PSP. Upon closer inspection, I have to wonder if I didn't get a micro-B cable instead. Quite odd.
My only concern with that is that I'll obviously need a replacement cable. I am quite tech-illiterate unfortunately so I'm mostly looking for verification of some kind here. The cord I'm looking for is a mini-B 5-pin usb cable to connect my PSP 3000 to my PC, correct? Not a micro and not A or any other letter, correct?
I need this cord to retrieve my game purchases from the store as the wifi does not work on my PSP and the game I most want to play is available via that download only.
My second question is about the memory stick I see mentioned everywhere. From what I read, games can be played without one, is that correct? Will I be able to download my game and transfer it to my PSP and still be able to play it and create save files and everything without the memory stick? I saw something about system storage and I was hoping that would have enough space to hold my game and the save files. I have absoluely nothing else on this PSP yet. It's a clean, blank slate. The game, when downloaded to the PC was 555 MB. Will the PSP's storage system be able to handle that?
Thanks very much for any help you can give me!

None of my PSP 3000s came with a USB cable, but the PSP uses a standard mini-USB cable that you can get anywhere. It doesn't need to include one. Many people have one already.
Only the PSP Go has internal memory. The PSP 3000 has no built-in memory at all. You must have a memory stick to store anything on the console, including downloaded games, video, music, photos, game updates, and game saves.
