Hi and Welcome!

there is no problem connecting an external optical drive via USB. I strongly suggest not to buy an external drive without an own power supply. Additionally, I prefer the bigger 5.25" (Half Height) type since most slim drives are of questionable quality.

As for the game, I suggest to check the system requirements. Netbooks are low power devices and not designed for playing games.
