No. The USB port can not host any devices.

You can use a Bluetooth keyboard with the Fires that have Bluetooth.

No you can't. You can use a Bluetooth keyboard with Kindle Fire HD and HDX models.

Please forgive me but what would you use a keyboard for on a kindle e-reader.

To write notes (e.g. to make your own comments about particular passages in a book.)

Per Amazon, "Bring your Kindle Fire to the office and get the most out of your tablet. You can connect to your corporate Wi-Fi network and get on your company's intranet, download files, submit expenses, and more. Take advantage of the Kindle Fire's rich selection of productivity and business apps." I just prefer to use a keyboard instead of the touchscreen version on the device.
