    I hope this is not a dumb question.
    If not, can someone send me decompressed Smash files? I know they are pretty large but if someone could do it that would be nice.

    It is. You'd better ask on that iso site for 3DS.

    Why is it though?

    A full RomFS doesn't contain everything needed to run a rom, it still needs the ExeFS code, right?

    a patch is not legal either.
    What's important is the data inside the patch.

    If the patch contains YOUR OWN WORK (translation, mainly), then it's fine.
    If the patch contains a game's data, then it's illegal.

    Sharing a ROM in a xdelta form is as illegal as sharing it in .3DS or zip or rar, or whatever format you like to compress/encrypt it.
    Providing a patch to convert a ROM to another ROM means the patch contains the game itself.

    Don't ask ROM or ISO website here. Don't ask users to use PM either.
    Read the rules.

    and come one it's not that hard to go to google (is it?) and type "ISO" or "ROM" and your console name?
    "ISO 3DS" ... oh, look, first result.
    Was that too hard?
