How to change configurations and install programs in USBlive versions

I`m under heavy restrictions, with an old notebook, no HD on it, and in a supermarket`s eating plaza (dunno proper translats for `praca de alimentacao`). Only have a single USB flash drive, with no outlook to find another. The whole point is, I need to run Teamviewer and change keyboard settings to fit brazillian portuguese, for a start, and no way to do a proper #! instalation. What to do? Where to go?

Food court (thank you, Google).

Your on a computer with no hard drive, so your running CrunchBang from a USB drive? As far as I know, you can make your keyboard changes but they won't persist after a reboot, and software installation depends how much space is left on the drive. To have settings/applications persist after reboot you have to set the USB drive up that way. Search for "Live USB with persistence". If I recall correctly, (Debian-based distro) Knoppix has this option available when you run the Live CD (it asks you if you want persistence and how much drive space to reserve for it).

^ +1

Before installing #! to HDD I ran it on a 16GB USB stick.  It worked fine.

My old computer only has a 30GB HDD so I used the Persistent USB method as a way of dual-booting.

I followed the guide here: Persistent USB Install

How to change keyboard settings? That sudo apt-get xfce-options scritp dont work. I actually downloaded teamviewer three or four times, but all the package does is say that it cant connect find the package and freeze the package installer.

I`m aware that things are supposed to install in live versions, but to never persist. But the whole point is that I never get to install stuff on first place.

My live CD is in an USB flash disk, 4gb.

Change language with

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

Change keyboard with

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

Change timezone with

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Search the forum for how to do all these things with

Use the Search icon at the top right of the page

4GB is barely big enough to hold the OS and data IMO. You will have difficulty after doing an apt-get update and installing packages.
