Regional Problems and Downloaded Content doubts

Hi guys,
I have already checked out the post: I can't download/purchase because of "region" errors
but it only says :
 If you don’t currently live in a LIVE supported region then you may continue to experience issues with purchasing or downloading from the marketplace. 

My question is, if i live in a non supported region, and want to download games from the marketplace into my XBOX 360, can I buy microsoft points in a region that is supported and use those points to buy the games? Because my understanding is that some games cannot be purchased due to unsupported region, but can buying microsoft points in a supported region overcome this? 

IF i where to be able to download the game into my xbox 360 hard drive, will i need a CD to play?
The reason is that my discs are always damanged and finding replacements from the vendor is difficult. Having them stored in the hard drive would certainly make sure i dont waste money on new discs.

thank you for your time!

your account region MUST reflect your actual region to download region locked content

having a US account to try and download US content will not work if it is REGION LOCKED

you must be physically inside the us to download the US content for region locked
