    There isn't even a snes virtual console lol.

    The closest you have are emulators.

    The best thing to look for, in my opinon, is to look at GBA CiA's because a LOT of GBA vc are remakes of the old SNES and NES games. If you're looking for an old Mario game, I think GBA might be your best option

    Not a VC title - it's a recreation. There's no ROM to replace inside that CIA, so no, we don't have a SNES VC emulator.

    There's no way to run SNES games natively on 3DS. GBA is another story, since the Ambassador GBA games already do it, using DS' backwards compatibility.

    I mean, mayyyyyyyyyyyyybe it could be possible to pack a SNES rom with BlargSNES in a CIA and configure it to autoboot? That could be the nearest we could get, and BlargSNES' developer has biggest issues to take care before thinking on anything like that (It would be cool, tho)
