Yes, you can do the workflow you've described. But once you've finished your edit, it's easier to media manage your project to an external drive and keep just the media you've used as a backup. Then you can just reopen the media managed project any time. You'll also want to keep copies of the original SDHC cards as well. Make sure you copy the whole file structure from the cards.

You can't use a capture card with an HMC150 as there is no external machine control. You can run HDMI out from the camera, but there's no timecode available.

Contrary to what Dave says, you are not cheaping out. These are the workflows we'll all be using as tape based recording systems start to become obsolete. A capture card is good to have for insuring proper outputs to monitors and video decks, but they're not used for capturing media from AVCHD, Sony SxS or P2 cards.
