    There is an emulator but it won't run well, the only flashcart that supports gba games "natively" is the SuperCard DSTWO (and DSTWO+), but since you have a 3DS, why not downgrade and install a CFW and then run them via VC??

    it's super easy, you either find the gba cias on that iso site or you make them yourself

    1) You should use an emulator -> They're pretty slow as of now.
    2) You can run them using a DSTwo -> Have you got a DSTwo?
    3) Any CFW with proper patches lets you run GBA games from sysNAND. Did you install them there?

    I do not have DSTwo and I have Rxtools on my 3ds. After installing game just on my emunand i'm getting some kind of error. So If i got it right, I should install game on Sys and emunand and it will work? Nothing else?

    Install the cia to your sysnand and your emunand and launch from either.

    I have installed it on Sysnand and emunand but game still isn't working. Is it maybe because game doesnt show on sysnand?

    install only into sysnand(if unlinked nands),is useless to install both if you don't have emu+sys linked(sys+emunand)and plus when you exit a gba games you are forced to reboot into sys(Luma3ds)instead and can you have problems with unwrapping games at every reboot or out of folder games etcc...it's only your choice at end :)

    because your nand probably are unlinked,install only into sys and live happy :)

    If you're on a New 3DS, how about trying gpSP from RetroArch? The emulation is near perfect, just don't forget your GBA BIOS.

    What do you mean rxtools is dead? I don't want to lose all my stuff which are now on rxtools. What does it means?

    Try booting miniPasta and then see if they show up on sysnand, or boot sysnand with patches though RXtools.
