STM32F4 Discovery & Replicating USB Host

Hello,
I am in the process of developing a board with the STM32F407. On the Discovery MMB997C card, it uses a very convenient USB host interface for programming, debugging,etc, that I would like to also replicate on my card. Is it possible to do this any other way but what is shown in the Discovery schematic? Can the USB not be connected directly to the STM32F407 as on pg. 171 to 173 of the manual (DM00037051) ? I'm presently using IAR EWARM to connect. I guess I don't really understand the purpose of the STM32F103C8T6 device, if it's just to support that USB functionality?

Can someone please clarify this for me, and what hardware is actually needed to provide the same interface?

Thank you.
