    Using a ROM trimmer. It doesn't cut them by more than about a third at max, somtimes it barely trims at all, it depends on which game it is.

    Should I turn on patch SRAM for GBA roms? Also what does that mean to patch SRAM?

    Yeah you should, it fixes some of the save errors, like the save error for Super Mario Advance 4.

    Gay little cat...speaking of that game, should the game save file be 64kb or 128kb?
