    For Snes - I recommend the Snes9x 4.3.4 (I believe) mod that implements many changes to speed/stability and allows covers to be shown.

    For GBA - mGBA would be the one, it has full speed for just about every single GBA game and there are experimental nightly builds that even support GB and GBC
    Stable - https://github.com/mgba-emu/mgba/releases/download/0.4.0/mGBA-0.4.0-wii.7z
    Nightly - https://s3.amazonaws.com/mgba/mGBA-nightly-latest-wii.7z

    N64, I recommend Not64, a branch of Wii64 that also fixes many graphical glitches and games that didn't work before work with it now :P

    Hope this helps ^_^

    Far better in terms of speed and stability, even games like Golden Sun 1 and 2, Mother 3, even the most demanding games run at full speed, no audio stutter, save state support, fast forward, it's superior in terms of overall performance by far.

    Nope, there aren't framerate drops or audio stuttering either.

    theres a wii emulator that gets overlooked and its called Wiimednafen

    a port of the mednafen emulator, I use it to play virtual boy games smoothly (retroarch isnt so good for this) and turbografx-16 and cd games
