As Xorg uses autodetection I think it isn't possible without an
persistent usb stick.
For enabling persitency with a file on a fat32 formatted stick you need
to create a file with dd with you preffered persistent file size and
then simply format this with ext2/3 or 4 or whatever filesystem you
like. Rename the file to casper-rw and add "persistence" to your boot
Alternatively you can resize the fat32 portion of your filesystem on
your stick and add a ext2/3 or 4 formatted filesystem to it with the
label casper-rw to enable full persistency. For only activate
persistency for your home directory (this wouldn't solve your xorg
resolution problem though) replace casper-rw with home-rw.

Here are commands summed up.

1. DD (2GB Persistency Image):
 dd if=/dev/zero of=/media/your_path_to_usbstick/casper-rw bs=1024
2. Format the persistent image
 mkfs.ext2 /media/your_path_to_usbstick/casper-rw
3. Add persistent to your bootoptions
4. Reboot

Hope this helps you :)
