    I know there's talk about Homebrew and flashcarts available for the NDS family. That being said, I want an NES emulator for my DSi, but don't want to have to buy a flashcart for it. Is there a way to sideload it via my SD card, even if it requires hacking the system itself?

    Not that I'm aware of, your best bet is still a flash cart. The best cheap one is only $17...

    There is no homebrew launcher for DSi that is easily accessible

    Well, you could install an exploitable DSIware game plus its exploit via hardmod, then run a DSi-mode-compatible NES emulator (do any even exist?)

    Considering that the flashcard recommended by Jayro is 19 dollars shipped with tracking plus the cost of a microSD (plus it runs almost all retail, dev, and homebrew DS apps) - while a professional hardmod will be 35 to 50 dollars and will "only" give you all DSiwares...
