If you already have the USB made. You should just have to insert the USB then hold the Option key while booting. From there select the USB from the selection of drives. Then it's just install Windows as per usual then install the Bootcamp drivers for your model of computer.

the cpu is Intel core 2 duo p8600, but based on this website https://everymac.com/systems/by_capability/maximum-windows-booting-supported.html mine max supported windows is windows 7
While not officially supported by Apple. They just didn't bother to update or qualify their drivers. Most drivers should install from the Windows disk and Windows update. As for missing drivers. You should be able to take Apple's Windows 7 Bootcamp drivers (or 8 if available). Then manually install them in Windows 10.

Just curious as to why you are getting rid of macOS? If you just want an updated OS. Using the DOSDUDE1 patch for Catalina works great. Otherwise Ubuntu works faster.
