Hello all, 3ds newbie here (I mostly hangout in the Android development community and know a small amount about exploits and have a few computers running Linux, yada yada yada). I am looking to mod my 3ds (currently running 9.5.0, I know, not moddable yet) and run a few homebrew apps and/or emulators (not interested in piracy). I am slightly interested in the development aspect of the web-based exploits (they're really neat in my opinion). So I have a few questions:
Is it possible to install a file format other than .cia (like .3ds) while in sysNAND, without using ninjhax? (I don't mean for 9.5, I just mean in general)
Is it possible to upgrade sysNAND to a specific version? (Like if I downgraded using gateway's launcher.dat loaded through the web browser and wanted to upgrade to 4.5 or 9.2)
Is it possible to upgrade emuNAND to 9.4 while keeping sysNAND at 4.2 (or whatever it's at) while using only one SDCard?
Thanks for taking the time to read through these all and I apologize if these were answered somewhere else already and I missed them.

- Installing stuff: No, .CIAs is the only installable format.
- Upgradeing sysNAND: Yes, you can, but you'll need a game with your desired FW. When/if you update, make sure you're wifi is off. You can check 3ds.essh.co to see which game has your desired update.
- Upgrading emuNAND: Yes. Check out one of the many Tutorials/Guides, they will help you a lot.

You can find more info here:

like Lenan said ^

..but if you have a new3DS you cannot downgrade it, and you cannot use a Gateway. But you can use a Sky3ds if you want to play 3ds roms (.3ds) ..

I would advise against this, as you can use emunand instead, so just leave sysnand at 4.x

My 3ds is the original one, not the n3ds, and I don't necessarily want to purchase a gateway/sky3ds cart.

Thank you, I will be sure to do that once the GW launcher becomes compatible with 9.5 and allows me to downgrade (I actually had it downgraded with cfw installed the other day, but was unable to install cias, got upset, restored my sdcard, and updated to 9.5).
