    Can you make a USA account if u don't live in the USA? Will everything still work the same when you buy stuff and redeem codes?

    You can, by theory, by opening iTunes and selecting store USA, but It violates iTunes' EULA, stating that you cannot create an iTunes account outside of the country you reside in. Everything will work the same and you can redeem codes, however, Apple has the right to freeze your account if they know your reside elsewhere.

    Basically if you want something on the USA appstore or whatever go for it.
    If apple finds out... oh well you tried.

    No; you keep your applications, but you cannot purchase and/or download additional items and music.

    I haven't heard of anyone's iTunes account frozen for this reason, but again, it's against the EULA.

    Yes, you can. I've tried

    iTunes, for some reason, doesn't IP check your location, but you will need to provide a billing address.
