    Including ROM hacks, and fan translations?

    Also worth noting I'm talking about original DS ROMs. Sorry, don't know how to edit titles with Tapatalk...

    No.
    You need a CFW to do any of that.
    Even more no for that. You need a flashcart and or a CFW for that as well.
    Or

    You need either a flashcart or TWLoader
    I suggest using a flashcart because TWLoader doesn't support most games yet.
    I suggest the R4i Gold (URL on cart r4ids.cn)

    I also recommend r4i gold. I just ordered it from nds-card. Got it within days and it works like a charm out of the box. Just load your software and games onto the micro SD card plugged into the cart and you are good to go.
