    Well, I used to stream the 3DS screen to my old PC using Kitkat, but, to be honest I'm a bit rusted on the theme and I have a new PC, also reading in reddit it comes that Kitkat developmen has halted, what are my best options to stream my 3DS screen to my PC? I'm running a N3DS XL with B9S and NTR.

    KitKat still works fine. Also, I recommend you use Connectify to optimize quality and reduce lag time while streaming.

    It basically turns your computer into a WiFi hotspot, thus connecting your N3DS to your PC directly without using a router as a middleman. It does cost money ($10 iirc) if you want to change the SSID and want to avoid interruptions every half hour. Using a good router and dedicating it to streaming (meaning don't use the router you normally use for normal purposes) would probably give you similar results.

    If you have a high end router, you don't really need to dedicate it to streaming, my 802.11ac ASUS RT-AC68U router gives great results even though I use it for everything.
    It helps that most of my devices are either using 802.11ac or are wired, with my laptop and phone as the only exceptions (they're using 5Ghz N), and of course the 3DS which is still stuck on 2.4Ghz (802.11g I believe? Not sure)
    So the 3DS gets the 2.4Ghz band all to itself.
