tcm0 is right, but assuming there actually was a port of Wood (or you're getting another flashcard), or for anyone else reading:

which file system is best for it?
The one appropriate for the size of your microSD (SD or SDHC), unless you have picky homebrew

1- make save stats.
Enable soft reset and RTS, start game, press soft reset key combo (default is L+R+A+B+down) (those things can be set as default by pressing start > settings in the file list, or for individual games by pressing Y twice on them)

2- open cheat menu and activate and deactivate certain cheats.
There's no on-the-fly cheat menu, you set them before playing by enabling the cheat engine (again, from global or game's settings) and select the codes by pressing Y then X on a game

3- exit the game and use other game without exiting to 3DS menu.
same as (1) but you don't need the buggy RTS :)

4- change the save type of the game so i can use my old save files.
You can select the filenames between GAME.nds.sav and GAME.nds from the settings again, I don't know DSTWO but DSONE is directly compatible with Wood, if conversion is needed - http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php

You can't get wood, but you can get ysmenu which is still pretty great. There's a thread about it somewhere here, I'll look for it.

Only the official kernel and ysmenu. I would suggest you to stay at the DSTWO.
The official kernel is shit (some of the features are buggy, timebomb etc).
YSMenu misses lots of features and looks like shit.
oh, i've download it from here
http://www.r4i-sdhc.com/downloade.asp

V1.84b

so, this is ysmenu?
i really want to stay at DStwo, but it sucking the battery like monster.

is there enhanced kernel?

i've read "how to install"
Backup your µSD to a Backup folder on your PC BEFORE upgrading to a new Kernel

Format your µSD with the Panasonic SD Formatter 3.1
Use these options :
FORMAT TYPE - FULL (OverWrite)
FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT - ON

DUAL BOOTING :
Download the latest Kernel from your carts website and extract to root of your µSD.
Extract these files from R4i-SDHC YSMenu folder and copy to root of your µSD :

Games folder
TTMenu folder
TTMenu.dat
YSMenu.nds

Boot your carts Kernel, then load YSMenu.nds.

how to i actually boot to cart kernel?

do you know what?
i am going to use @Technicmaster0 's advice
sure DStwo is power hungry, but it's menu is the easiest to use and the faster card to load the roms.

i tried the ys menu from the reddit link, it's not that good, the GW card is far better but it doesn't support save stats, but it least it fit on my 3DS very easy.
