So I was wondering if there would ever be something to convert a .nds ROM to a cia to install. I man Original DS games, not just DSIware.

Injecting NDS files into CIA will never be possible. The closest we've ever gotten to NDS games as DSiWare is Nintendo's digital release of WarioWare Touched via My Nintendo.
Even if it were possible, the NAND memory is not large enough to hold most NDS games.
As others have pointed out, it is possible to achieve a similar effect to injects with nds-bootstrap and NDS forwarders.

    A golden turd by dell, surprise surprise. Funny how the gold case is $50 more than a black one same specs. I'd pay $50 extra if it didn't have Dell on the front of it.

    In some ways that's kind of a good thing. I remember when PCs where way more expensive and if yours was a year old it was an antique
