Forever stamps cost 55 cent. In one envelope I've sent 10 at a time; no letter included. Where my love is he can get up to 25 pictures a day.

If I remember right you are headed to a federal prison and while I cannot say I completely understand the system or know that all federals (or women prisons) are the same.... what I can say is that where my husband is stamps are often used as "currency" and are very valuable. They sell them at the commissary and they are often used to "buy" things inside.

No, stamps can't be sent in from outside, only (limited amount) purchased from the commissary. "Books of stamps" used in the underground economy can be just about any denomination, and probably would not be accepted by the US Post Office for postage.
