So I want to make a ROM of Newer, and I have unpacked an ISO of NSMBW and replaced the files, but how do I repack the folder to a Wii ISO? And how do I convert that to a WBFS?

wit (Wiimms iso tools) can convert between pretty much every Wii disc format, including loose files (sometimes called FST) and WBFS directly :)

(You might want to extract the original game with it first, if you haven't already, so that you can have a working reference for file and folder layout)

is there an easier way?

Well you could just use Riivolution as intended?

If you want to build wbfs for a lot of the NSMB-mods I found Patchimage to be the most functional - but it will require you to run Linux. A VM Will work fine: https://gbatemp.net/threads/patchimage-riivolution-patcher-for-gnu-linux.349979/

You can also find some Bat-files around this forum which may or may not work... Many of them errors out because they try to retrieve now non-working URIs to get the mods.

EDIT: For most riivolution mods its simply not enough to copy the files, look at the xml-file, and you will see that there is also other magic going.
