    Except programming you need the program's source code you want to port.

    I don't know if you know exactly what's involved in "porting" a game to another platform, but believe me, it's not the easiest thing, especially if you don't have source code to follow and have no knowledge of programming.

    I'll "port" your games for you... At a rate of $50/hour, and as long as it doesn't violate any copyright terms.

    You can't just take a PC game, convert it, and drag it to your DS.

    It would be extremely challenging.
    You'd need to learn to program for the DS and you'd really have to re-create the game off of the original PC game so it will play on the DS.

    So, no, you can't play PC games on DS.
