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

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
