    The youtube video literally says where to get the mod. Go to the site and get it.

    Same place.
    If the modder didn't post it on his site then you won't find it anywhere else.

    There might not be a tool, or if there is the creator may not have released it. They don't list it on their site, but you could try contacting them and asking them.

    The ROM of the games is on the website the video mention and you don't need to patch

    Proof

    You'll need a good sprite editor.
    First you open the rom with a tile editor (Crystaltile2, or if that's not good enough, Tilemolester)
    You choose the correct mode depending on system (GBA/SNES/MD/NES/...)
    You choose the correct tile dimensions, arrangement alignment (Up/Down/Left/Right alone/+shift/+alt/+ctrl)
    You open the rom with an emulator and get the palette from the advanced options, and then put those colors in CT2
    You'll have to work with the original colors.

    You can draw new stuff instead of the original graphics. Either pixel by pixel with the tile editor, or exporting it to a bmp and editing it in paint/photoshop

    If you want new colors, then you need to study how that system stores palettes, then modify it with a hex editor (not difficult, it's even fun to do this)

    For example, here are the sprites from MW4. I managed to modify some and then when I ran the game again in an emulator, I saw the changes :)

    Just take extra care to assign the color that would be transparent in-game as something other than black (example: green - or any color not used by the sprite)
