you can of course splice the wires of one of the controler ports and put in a usb hub/port.
if you chose a hub then your controller wont work if you plug it straight into the hub(the controller its self is a hub so a hub plugged into a hub just wont work).
if you chose a single port to add, then you will be able to plug the controller into that port but not another into the regular controller port.
in both cases, you wont be able to have something in the added port as well as a controller in the controller port it's piggybacking off.
if you just want to use a usb port for removable media, then i suggest you replace the ports on the actual controller with regular usb ports. the only difference between the two will be the extra wire on the controller side (the yellow wire) you will find and im pretty sure thats the middle electrode. perhaps a google search for something like 'add usb port to xbox controller -360' that should put you in the right direction.

The memory slots on the controller are simply usb ports with another connector.
The xbox root hub is a 4 port which are all used for the controller ports.

Just run it off a controller port.
