There are IPS patches for some games that convert the japanese text into a "fan subbed" english version. As a result some of the translations aren't acurate. But this can be a way to play games that might not ever see a western release.
Not all games are translated because of the time involved.

Let me clarify...sometimes fans of a game make a translation. This costs a LOT of effort and generally happens after the lifespan of a console has ended so they know for sure that there won't be a US release of the Japanese game. Basically there are pretty much no worthwhile complete translations for GBA yet.

So no, there is no magical way to make a Japanese game English. However, some games, like Summon Night 2 And Yggdra Union (the only two good games I'm aware of) are going to be released in the US and Europe. You can look up the dates on www.gamefaqs.com but from the top of my head I think Summon Night 2 is going to be released somewhere in october.

As the people have already said translation is a long involved process and Japanese to European languages RPG's are the hardest of the lot (actually Russian/Chinese translations sound pretty hard too and I know there are quite a few Chinese ones).

There is in fact also a Fire Emblem VI - The Sealed Sword which quite good as well as the Gyakuten Saiban 3 (Phoenix wright 3) translation project.
Fire emblem:

Phoenix Wright:

Fairly good list of translations:
