Yes. Just comment out those alsa loading lines and use:
That will detect all hardware when you first start Pulse. It's pretty good.
That will dynamically detect hardware that hal detects, which should include
your USB devices.
Is there a way to create alias ALSA names for pulse sinks? So instead

You could do something like this:
Where <pulseusbdevice> = the name of your usb device in pulse, and
<usbdevice> is the name you want to show up in ALSA. You could make those
entries for every usb device you have in your system.
Hope that helps!
