    Short answer: No

    Long answer: you will need to inject that rom into a VC GBA and play it that way. There are guides here if you do a search about it

    thank you but the existing cia files must be created in some was...

    MartinDocNewland do you mean a gba emulator like mgba? there the games are very laggy

    Davidosky99 iam afraid of the part "You may break system if you delete wrong system title in process, so I don't take any responsibility for any possible damages. If you are not comfortable with it - stop reading right here."

    It is quite safe, just download the gba rom.
    Next generate a header
    Then just apply the header with 2 banners and 1 icon(make those 3 pngs with specified sizes of the samples on paint).
    Then choose the ROM, header and images on the convertor and just generate the CIA.
    It's safe to install, really
