    I have the following:

    -N3DSXL 11.2.0-35 CFW
    -2DS 11.3.0-36 CFW

    Its only for DS games, but will it look better on my 3DSXL or 2DS? I'm assuming 3DSXL haha.

    What exactly is it going to look like on the 3DS? Will I have to go into the flash cart to access the DS games? Or is there a way to display them like installed .cia files? I'd like to be able to load say, Soul Silver from the same menu I can load Omega Ruby that has the little icon picture. Is there a way to do this?

    You'll have to go into the flashcart menu, but you can create forwarder for the home menu. Note that you only get 40 forwarders.

    Using forwarders will require CFW. Follow 3ds.guide on your N3DS.

    So will the forwarder show up where my installed cia files are? Also, will they have an icon?

    It would most likely look better on the 2DS due to the video being stretched to fit the larger screen

    Is there a tutorial for adding DS forwarders?

    The roms go on the DS cart, the *.nds files generated are for a DSi

    ???
    The forwarder programme only makes .ini files [for the ds cart] and .cia files to install via fbi

    .nds files are the roms

    Must've changed, back when I made my forwarders, it made an *.nds file and a *.cia file
