    As you posted this in the DS section some might assume you mean the DS versions of such things. The main option for this is DSx86 http://dsx86.patrickaalto.com/
    On the same site is a version for the DStwo flash cart which emulates up to 80386.

    DS mode is DS mode whether you are on a DS, DS lite, DSi or any flavour of 3ds. If you have a DSi hacked to use DSi mode then this does have a version with improvements for that.

    If you are thinking full dos4gw, 3dfx, the sort of thing you might shut down windows 95 for to speed up the game and such like then stop now. Many such games have since been open sourced, or recreated, and those ported to the DS (and you also have things like SCUMMVMDS) but some kind of native version of those is right out. Older text adventures, old versions of things like pipe dream and such are the sorts of things you might be playing here,

    If you meant a 3ds with full 3ds homebrew then you have more options, though not quite plug and play/land of milk and honey. I am less familiar with these, much less their current incarnations, but libretro dosbox and retroarch dosbox are probably good places to start.
