Is it possible to inject a save from an emulator copy of Pokemon Silver to the virtual console 3DS Pokemon Silver? If so, please explain.

Yes, it should be. Use jksm to dump silver's save. If there's a .sav in there, overwrite that. It might not be in .sav format, but it's in there somewhere.

incase OP meant to inject a ROM (perhaps a romhack?) you can do that too easily with Luma, enable gamepatching and figure out the filename of the ROM with godmode9 by browsing inside the title and mounting the .app.

what about crystal? since the VC game has the celbi feature... does that make the game slightly different? thus the old sav not work properly?

My old save (with E4 already beaten many times) from vba work on the vc, but I didn't manage to get Celebi.
So I'm beating the E4 on the 3ds this time, and I will try.

Edit : Yes, the Celebi event work

Dump your save with JKSM.
Take the save from VBA (or any other emulator) and open it in HxD, then edit the 2 last extra lines

Save and close it.
Copy the save in the jksm folder with renaming it to sav.dat and delete the old.
Re-inject, it should be ok.
If you still get a corrupted save message, open SavaDataFiler, select the id of Crystal, and delete your Secure Value with R+X.

you need to actually have a save to inject a new one.
start the game, play until you can save. (and save)
start JKSM or Checkpoint.
Backup/dump save
open that folder and replace sav.dat
Restore the save.

    At my last job I (as an individual contributor, not a manager or supervisor or anything) used to be the one to tell my manager when I was traveling for work "hey I'm gonna be out of office between x and y dates, I got something on the other side of the country I'm gonna go work on"
