I have a SparseImage on a USB Drive. Can I boot from it? If so, how?

also,

2. How do I restore my system to the previous one that's on the SparseImage? SuperDuper won't let me select the .sparseimage in the "Copy From" field.

No, you cannot boot from a sparse image, since it's not a real drive.

You can open it and use its volume as the source volume for restoring. See the User's Guide section - "Recovering from a disaster".
