comment Mount an ISO Image on Windows 2008 Server
The problem isn't mounting the ISO, the problem is installing extra software and extra drivers on a server to facilitate the mounting. If you want to keep servers as clean and stable as possible, you don't install extra drivers unless you really need them. Standalone EXEs and portable software don't need an install, and don't install drivers.

comment What do each of the actions in the SCCM Client actually do?
The Hardware Inventory Cycle is actually a confusing name, what it really means is "WMI Inventory", as it reports any info available via WMI which is primarily hardware related info, but also includes other info accessible via WMI such as Add/Remove Programs, Operating System type and version, Services, etc. Whereas "Software Inventory" really means what most people would think of as a file inventory (except that would be too close to File Collection Inventory, which as you say above is different).
