    You need to extract them. If you have WINrar in your PC, click right button on your mouse and click on Extract Here... and you should see a file ending with .nds. That's your nds rom.

    PPF is a patch format; it can be applied with a program called PPF-O-Matic. Probably bypasses the copyright protection on the game.
