Default Question about RAM, ROM, Internal/External Memory


(quick version : skip to last chapter)

I am about to buy my first smartphone, but I am kind of exigeant when buying "the ones that fits the most to me". I know I'm heading to HTC on Android, but I'm hesitating between 4 phones, and there is one particular question that could help me choose.

From what I've heard (irl and on forums), the performance seems usually the first problem mentionned.
Example : a friend with a Wildfire (512MB RAM, 600 GHz) said he had sometimes difficulties with bigger apps. So I'd be heading a little higher. My 4 choices are the Desire S, One S, One V or Sensation.

They have different RAM and ROM and CPU, and here is my question :
IF the RAM is the main limiting factor, is it possible to allocate more RAM place from the ROM ? I'm thinking about this because for some smartphones you can add a MicroSD card, which seems just perfect for storing apps while the RAM + a part of the internal phone do the rest.
