Well, you're in luck, because you are on firmware that's downgradable so that you can play backup copies of games.

Read this thread here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/3ds-noob-paradise-ask-questions-here.359035/

And this guide to help you downgrade your firmware: http://gbatemp.net/threads/noob-friendly-guide-to-downgrading-your-3ds-from-fw-10-7.418125/

Also don't forget to ask questions if you don't get some stuff, always do backups, and follow the steps EXACTLY as they were written to avoid bricking your 3DS (which happens rarely).

Downgrade, then backup your sysnand, then make an emunand, then get cfw (like Luma3ds). You really should check out the guide I linked. Step by step instructions.

Yeah, what you do basically is downgrade to 9.2, install emunand and cfw. Ninja'd.

What @ishygdaft said. And AFTER you've done what he said, you can update to 11.0. It's safe to do it then, but don't do it now.

They come in a 3ds install-able format that's the same as what the eshop uses, plus you'll need a program (fbi, bbm, devmenu, etc) to install these games in .cia format. It's a little bit more involved then a flash cart but it's free and pretty easy to do. If you wanna you can also use programs (on the 3ds mind you) like CIAngel or freeshop to get your stuff.
