Buster Live DVD Gnome Issues

Kenneth Parker-2
About a couple hours back, I downloaded "debian-live-10.3.0-amd64-gnome.iso from the Debian site.  I then used Brasero (3.12.2-5) to burn it to a Sony DVD-R.  In other words, I wanted a Live-DVD of, what I created on a Laptop through the Net Install method, in the last few days.  The Laptop, which is a "surprise Success Story" for Buster Debian Gnome is one I've posted about many times:  Lenovo Ideapad 320.  (None of the crashes or hangs, that I encountered with, XFCE, for example).  

So, to "Share the Wealth", I figured that I would create a Live DVD of this, up to date Buster system.  Long of short, it wouldn't Boot on an HP Pavilion Tower (probably a UEFI issue), but it DOES boot the Lenovo Ideapad that created it.  It takes its time, and eventually comes up with the Gnome Screen with "Activities" at the top left.   

Question 1:  Can you do "Non-Free Firmware on a USB Stick", while this DVD is booting up?  

Thanks!

I also responded to a separate Thread, regarding "Offline Install via CD", but will put this question here, to combine issues from both Threads:  Why can't we have an "Expert Path", with appropriate Menu Items (i.e. for Non-Free Firmware, and Network access), leading to a Live DVD Environment? 

Thanks in advance,

By the way, I need to report a "Misbehavior" of this Live DVD Gnome environment:  Power Save.  First time, it recovers (partway), if you hit the Space Bar.  If you leave it long enough for a second Power Save, it's completely hung, requiring a Hard Reset (long-press of the Power Button) to recover.  (Obviously, this is likely related to the lack of methodology to get Non-Free Firmware on it).

Thanks!
