Is very easy to buy B&N books outside the US:
- Register your B&N account with an US shipping and billing address. Any valid US address will do, just google something. The credit card address is not checked, so your UK credit card will work fine.
- Install an US VPN like Hotspot Shield (free) or AlwaysVPN ($8.50) on your PC.

To buy ebooks first start the VPN. When the VPN is active go to the B&N website and buy the ebooks.
Sync the library on your Nook to download the books using the Wifi connection.

As a replacement of USB cable, you can install Android SDK and it is capable to find ST (as an android device) via WiFi and show all files on it. You can use this to put books on it much the same way as through the USB cable.

As for going an extra length to be able to buy ebooks from B&N directly (like geertm suggested), it works too. But why bother if they don't want you as a customer? Also it is always good to remember that >90% of money you pay for ebooks stays in the pockets of the publishing houses and b&n and only <10% goes to the author.
