    You can try a gba emulator with cia version like retroarch or mgba. You would not gain much speed, but I think you'll get more memory, and that's always good. I think retroarch cia lets you input cheats.

    It needs gba bios for it to work properly.

    Last I tried to use a GBA emulator you just needed to but the BIOS image with all of the other GBA ROMs, where ever on your SD those might go.

    Old or New 3DS?

    Since you're on Old 3DS then i'm gonna say no. None of the gba emulators runs at full speed on Old 3DS so you'll have to live without cheats if you want games to be playable xP

    I did in fact try with save data manager and it only say 'broken' and not with only one gba game. I've been a member in gbatemp for a while, so don't think I've never tried anything at all.

    The BIOS goes in retroarch/cores/system like mentioned on the wikia. As for editing save files, you'll want dedicated tools for specific games. If I remember correctly, when a game saves, it also calculates a hash of the save file and saves that. If you try to load a save file, it checks the hash and if the hash is different from the new value, it says it's corrupt and refuses to load it. I could be wrong, it's been awhile since I've messed with GBA saves and that might have been a later thing.

    More powerful? Check the specs of both console before you make such a statement. PSP has more CPU and GPU than the old 3ds. PSP has 333MHz while 3DS only has 266Mhz and that's a pretty big difference, plus that PSP has been hacked for a longer time than 3DS so it's been more time to make a perfect gba emulator.

    Sorry if I sound a bit rude, but please look stuff up before asking a question or making a statement like that. :)
