Default External Subtitles w/ Physical Media?

Excuse me for being a tech noob but I import a lot of films but there are several that do not have subtitles. I own an Insignia NS-BRDVD4 and got the firmware .iso '20101015_NSBRDVD4_BBY_B083_022_21' from a member of this forum. That allowed me to make the player region-free for both DVD and Blu-ray.

I wondered if it is possible to download a .srt or similar file type to USB and have it boot subtitles for a DVD or Blu-ray? I have read on other forums there is a way to do this, but it depends on the player. Does anyone know more about this - information seems scant. It appears as though most people ask how to combine .srt with .avi files on a USB drive. This does not pertain to me as I am not really into downloading my films, much prefer buying legit or not at all.

Also, saw that this player only supports UTF-8 encoded subtitles. Once again, big noob here, looking for some layman's terms on this stuff...

If there is a way to boot an external .srt file to play with a physical DVD/Blu-ray, please advise how. Thanks!
