Homebrew Is there a homebrew that allows me to use a controller on the ( Old ) Nintendo 3DS?

So... I love my Nintendo 3DS, but I hate the position of the d-pad on it, it is extremely uncomfortable for me to play some 2D/2.5D games like Kirby Planet Robobot on it.

I was wondering if there is no homebrew that allows me to use the DualShock 4 (which is perfect for 2D platforms) or the Switch Pro Controller, I know that there is the 3DS Controller that allows me to use the 3DS as a control on the PC (I do that as an additional controller on Wii U when I play Super Mario 3D World with my nephews), but what I really wanted was to use some controller on the Nintendo 3DS, almost as if it were a home console ( Too bad Old 3DS is not strong enough to have the image reshaped on the Wii U or PC if it wouldn't be perfect for me. )
.
[EDIT]

Another question came to me, is it possible to use a controller like the Switch Pro Controller to work on the Old 3DS as a Circle Pad Pro? (to operate the additional buttons and the second analog)

3DS doesn't have any way to connect to controllers (USB or bluetooth).
Without a hardmod, the only real way to communicate input to a 3DS is WiFi.

The wii u needs something like this considering the shortage of gamepads it would be nice to use a new 3ds xl as a controller or a cheap 40$ 2ds as a option I was considering buying a white Japanese gamepad as a backup for mine
