Yes it would. It's not a problem. I had a white Japanese DS Lite I used in the states until I lost it. I use my American black DS Lite here in Japan now.

No problem.

Your R4 will work in any DS, and you can charge a DS with a charger from any country.
I think Canada uses 110V, and I know Japan does, so you will just have to get an adapter if you want to use the original charger.
Edit: All DS' run on the same voltage, just that of the chargers is different.

    It's a good idea to wait it out and let things happen naturally tinkering with update files can cause worse than good
