    you don't have to install all the cias. put the retroarch folder on the root of your sd card then install the cias you want to use.

    if you want more info on setting up retroarch for 3ds visit this thread

    I would suggest going to the libretro website, downloading the CIA from there and installing via FBI - this would be the easiest option rather than manually install which may be leading to your black screen?

    The libretro website also has install guides under the 'getting started' menu item.

    There are either CIAs for each core, or you can install the all-in-one CIA.

    Read up on cores that require a BIOS file, and where to store ROMs & BIOS on your SD card - Google can help you from here.
