You can speed it up, but not with an SSD or a hard drive. The fastest calculations today are done with video cards and GPU programming. So if you get a cheap video card and run Cuda or OpenCL you can get quite a lot of performance. That being said GPU processing vs regular processing have similar limitations when using scrypt because the most efficient way ...
Nope because you run it in memory not from the hard drive. The only form of hash cracking I know so far which uses a hard drive, are table lookups like Rainbowtables. Even in that case the benefit of an SSD is limited since it's read in sequentially. SSDs are good for random reads and writes.
