Can I connect a non powered 3.0 USB hub to my airport extreme, and add two hard HDD used for time capsule funtion, other HDD for storing?

I would like to connect 2 hard drives, ideally via 3.0 non powered hub for higher speed than 2.0.

I would like to use one HDD as a backup via time capsule functionaility and the other for files I want to share on my network.

Is this possible?

Is this possible with a 3.0 USB hub (non powered)

If not, what setup would I need (powered? USB 2.0? ...?)

Any implications to a wireless mouse and keyboard as well as air print (apparently USB 3.0 hubs interefere with wireless mice and keyboards somehow ...???)
