    Instructions
    http://buildbot.libretro.com/nightly/playstation/vita/

    Download the package for vita in the nightly builds section. Tested with snes, but it should work on all the emulators.

    1. Install snes 2002 or snes 2005, or install both (you can install both or more)
    2. Overlays/Filters go into "ux0:/data/retroarch/overlays (.png and .cfg files)
    3. Start the snes emulator, go to option "Onscreen Display/Onscreen Overlay", set the Overlay Scale to 1.32 or 1.33 and Overlay Opacity to 1.00 (whatever works best for you, on pstv or psp vita).
    4. Load your Rom (roms can be placed into any folder you create, just browse to it, set the folder path in the "Directory" option from Retroarch's Options

    (about 6 filters options, the blocks and the pebble filters will help remove any banding)
    (grabbed a old release from reddit someone made and used it as a template to create my own using adobe photo shop and Microsoft Office Picture Manage (to resign the file, with the color option, then enhance button, then save (wanted to use corel draw and spend more time on it, but there wasn't anything too difficult to do with the other easier to use programs)

    Included a "patchwork 1pass clear" version, if you prefer that to the "scanlines_clear" option for minimum banding. (Updated Link in OP)

    Thanks, with that I should be able to add a 6xBRZ overlay version to the package and complete the full set, well, all finished. I went back and made the ones I had full screen. You can download both packages the one in OP and "isoboy"'s package. You can add up to 9 overlays, so you have extra room.
