Once you load a periferal to a certain usb port can you change over to another USB port and it will still run
or not

It is not always that simple. With some devices, the software has to be installed for each port. This is not generally a problem as the software is already on the pc and the install proceeds automatically. I have a computer which uses a USB wireless device and when I change USB connector it needs to set up a new connection which requires passwords to be re-entered etc.

Mostimes yes, and sometimes no. It depends on the individual devices.
