With FUSE you can create a filesystem that just exposes one file and answer read/writes to this file as you like. It'll look like a regular file from the outside, so will have to be mounted with -o loop.

You can do it with NBD or FUSE, see How to write a userspace linux block device driver

I'd say first make it clear what your goal is, what is it you want to achieve with this project. Then it's easier to make choices. I can't tell you if knoppix is right for you, but for sure it's easier to start from an existing distro: you already have something that's working, make a few changes, try them etc. It's rewarding from the start. As you go along you can explore what makes a live distro tick: what's the boot process like, the filesystem etc. Starting from scratch is harder at the beginning: it'll be a long time before you see anything working, so you're more likely to give up.
