1. can I make 2 joycons act as one big controller? I wanna play snes games on my phone and using 1 joycon just doesnt feel good with my big hands... I did already configure the 2 joycons to be 2 halves of the virtual controller the emulator is using but it will be very good if my phone/pc can recognize them as one controller...
2. I have plans of playing wii games (loz ss in particular) and I dont have other controllers with motion control (no wii controllers...) is this possible to configure the joycons to act as the nunchuk controller for wii? or like the original controller?
3. switch hax wen??!??!!!

1. I don't know about phone but on PC you certainly can. There's a JoyCon driver that will let you do that: https://github.com/mfosse/JoyCon-Driver
WiinUPro also supports JoyCons now though I'm unsure if it has that functionality.
I have no idea if it will let you use motion controls though.

I never did anything with controllers and pc, is there any guide for setting up the joycons for dolphin (gc/wii emu)?

I think you set it up like any other controller. Which makes me think motion controls probably won't work.
Dolphin might need to have native support for it for motion controls to work, since the sensors don't seem to be exposed by the driver (they don't show up as axes in the controller settings)

but the driver is said to support motion control...

Have you checked out the Mayflash Magic-NS?

Also check out the YouTube channel called My Mate VINCE which has a number of videos showing him connecting the Switch controllers to various consoles and PC devices. He has some cool videos for this kind of thing.
