Can I mount a live folder or a Removable USB drive as an iso or a VHD and present it to a Hyper-V VM to as a bootable device?

Is there any way to boot a Hyper-V VM off a Removable bootable USB device ?

You can create a vmdk file pointing to your USB Drive. This vmdk file can be be used in Virtualbox or VMPlayer.However I am not sure if Hyper-V VM support vmdk files.

Alternatively you can use PLOP Boot Manager and try booting your USB Flash Drive
