Your bottleneck is the USB stick and USB 3.0 itself. There's simply not enough bandwidth to get smooth playback.
From your specs (quad i5, 1.4 GHz) I'm guessing you've got a the 2019 13" MBPro which should be powerful enough to handle quite some video editing, so I'd highly recommend getting an external SSD connected via Thunderbolt 3, or at least USB-C. ...
Welcome to video Stack Exchange. This is an interesting question, and one that I have asked myself in the past!
If you are willing to spend money, check out the third-party Adobe plugin Awkward Pause (click here for demo video).
For a quick and dirty solution, you can try using this command-line tool I made last semester for a class. It is different from ...
