Question about using multiple USB sticks

I'm currently running Retropie off a Pi 3, and have my ROMs mounted on a USB stick.
However, I want to add my PlayStation collection, but if I try to do that the stick won't be able to hold everything.
I'm toying with two possible 'solutions' but I'd like to know if any of you guys have tried them already, and if so whether they actually work.
Mounting two USB sticks at the same time, using two of the Pi's USB ports. One stick would have my PlayStation ISOs, the other would have the other ROMs. Would this lead to errors?
Mounting one USB stick at a time, switching between them (powering off in between) if I want to play games from a different system. Presumably this is more likely to work, but would scraping the contents of both sticks be an issue here?
My ideal scenario is that I have a PlayStation USB stick and an 'everything else' one, and when I put one into the Pi and boot up Emulation Station, I'll get the games on that stick, all scraped with images and the like. Would this be possible without too much issue?
Sorry for being amateur hour over here :)

@scully1888 why not put "everything else" on the SD card?
