comment Modifying WordPress core files
If you change the core, you'll have to re-do the changes after each single time you upgrade, and you'll make your installation non-standard so it's harder for people to help you. Just create a plugin, a widget, a template, a hook, or any of the many methods wordpress provides you to not have to change the core.

comment Using wpdb to connect to a separate database
Yes, another MySQL database. It's a separate DB on the same server, and it's not a Wordpress one. It's a custom db, with information I want to display inside wordpress.
