    You can't use .CIA files with Sky3DS. You need emuNAND to install them to.

    don't bother with .CIAs and .3dz's with Sky3DS. All you need is a dumped ROM with no header (i.e. any rom that you can find online) and the Sky3DS tool adds a public header automatically when you burn the ROM onto the card

    Speaking of headers though, in light of recent events I really don't think you should go online with games on Sky3DS

    Sky3DS: Only .3DS roms and no eshop games, it just isn't possible to use cia files on Sky3DS

    Gateway: .3DS / .3DZ (Online roms) / .CIA / eshop dumps
    cia files need to be installed to your 3ds with devmenu and can only be done with a Gateway in emunand mode

    Just like Xzi said

    You can use your own private headers by editing the template file or use No Ban No Sky tool or Sky3DS Template modifier one to do that.
    (You still need a way to dump your own retail game carts to extract the headers)

    Sky3ds can only play retail roms where you write the rom with diskwriter loaded with latest template to mmc. Rename any retail rom from .3dz to .3ds and write it to mmc with diskwriter. Install any update for the game from eshop with the latest firmware. Sky3ds cannot install cia files.
