Well for dd anyway you can bypass the cache all together. Adding
oflag=direct should do it.

Ok, so that flag and a reasonable bs to compensate.

What about "dsync"? Or "nocache"?

Maybe I'll try them to time the results later.

Or a many file copy to a usb device, using, say, mc.

Or instead of limiting the cache per application, do so per device. If the
usb is on /dev/sdh, limit the cache on /dev/sdh.

Is this possible at all?

No idea on your other questions.
