I own a JTAGkey Tiny, I am interested to test flashing an SPI BIOS
chip with it, what should I do?

The webpage says:

"The Amontec JTAGkey2 can be used with flashrom for programming SPI
chips. JTAGkey and JTAGkey-Tiny should work, if you add them to
ft2232_spi.c (untested)."

Should I power the chip externally in 3.3v?

There are many JTAG boards based on FT2232, that would be great to
support them all.

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
