Very simple question.

If I do this:

Navigate to your screen. Select "Manage Screen". Select "Advanced". Set "Audio Output" to "3.5mm jack". Press "Save".

Would I be able to listen to music via USB mono powered speakers (no HDMI connection, just USB) with no jack included and also with headphones with it plugged into the jack socket?

I want it so I can do both. It's for the phoniebox.de

Or if there is another way and I can't do it from that, let me know.

(3) USB hub connected to USB sound card which is in turn connected to (a) microphone (red) , (b) stereo speakers (green). I use VLC to listen/watch music/video. For the GUI desktop top right loudspeaker icon, I always right click and found/select the default HDMI selected. For VLC my audio device is always set to default. I don't use terminal mode raspi-config, which I know > advanced option > audio output device always select option (0) auto. – tlfong01 Oct 8 '19 at 3:26
