    Sorry if this is a frequently asked question but I've done quite some research and nothing seems to be helping.

    The best way is using the 3DS Virtual Console itself.

    Just turn the roms into VC CIA :) They will play via the systems own emulation.

    Will do, thanks. Where do the saves for these games go? Same as any other CIA save with SDF?

    You can but it is harder than an emulator.

    Play on your phone. VC games have no fullscreen option and the emulators are laggy.

    Actually you can set them to have full screen options, I know because I have a few VC injections that were set to full screen.

    Yeah, I found a few of them on that iso site.
    I have no idea how the hack works

    Well, except GBA, other VC has full screen options.

    But yeah, ONLY GBA VC has some extra difficulties, not only that but not every VC game will run on VC. Like battle toads, solar jet man, on nes, some most GBA games even with save patch, also for GBA saves, you need hourglass9/decrypt9 to back up or inject save data, since the common way to do it or other games doesn't exist as of yet/
