If you want you should be able to put the phone bootloader into USB Mass Storage mode. See the bottom of https://tow-boot.org/devices/pine64-pinephonePro.html - if you have tow-boot on your SPI flash, holding volume up will make the LED turn "blue" instead of "aqua".

You should then be able to use the directions in Step 3 to install directly to flash.

I have no idea if MMS works. Plain SMS does. If your SIM slot is broken you're not going to be using either with the phone's built-in modem.

I did install os/desktop software from my pc to an sd card installed in a smart card adapter on my pc using balenaetcher software.  Then reinsert into phone.  Did this probably a hundred times.
 
To test mms, just try attaching a file to a text message to see if it sends ok to see if mms work.  Also send a message to your phone that contains an attachment to see if you receive it properly. Mine did send and receive mms as well as sms using manjaro-phosh (latest beta version) until SIM card stopped working.
