    The flashcart will let you play DS roms. The guide i link will let you play 3ds roms.
    It will emulate NES, SNES, GBA, GB, and GBC at full speed if you have the old 3ds. The new 3ds can run PlayStation 1 at near fullspeed but no N64.

    If you need any more help I can PM you.

    The tutorial https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki will tell you everything you need to know to play 3ds roms. So yes it does tell you how to format your sd card. (I recommend a 32 GB sd card for the 3ds and the a 16 for the ds flashcart)

    Just do exactly what the guide says. If you read it, you'll see the steps say something like, "extract the blah blah folder to the root of your SD card".

    If you can find a cheap copy of freakyforms deluxe or cubic ninja you can run retroarch and play retro games.

    Yep, retroarch is a series of emulators that allow you to play SNES and NES among others. Installing homebrew is the hard part, easy breezing from there. Just make sure you follow the guide word for word, it's important to not miss a step!
