Outside of emulation, what new hardware devices will store and run all of these Roms, or is it a balancing act, in regards to storage i.e. slots?

I have one of these, but when I place the ROMs in the supposed slots, I experience weird issues. I can load about five games in total, then I get crashes.

Every initialised ROM takes up at least a little bit of RAM, if only to register their RSXes. Plenty of programs were written assuming that the memory map of the CPC was fixed and that every byte that is free on an unexpanded machine will always be free.
Combine 1 and 2 and you get "weird issues" when a program decides to overwrite a ROM's scratchpad area.
