    what? HBC is an abbreviation for The Homebrew Channel, however we're not hacking a Wii here, we're hacking a 3DS. We refer to the main homebrew loader for the 3DS as The Homebrew Launcher, or HBL for short.

    The art of modifying a ROM/ISO's internal files to affect the game's behaviour/appearance. (for example model swapping, code editing, and custom music are all types of ROM hacking, because you are making changes to the game's perfectly clean and untouched files.)

    Hope that kinda gives you an insight as to what rom hacking and the homebrew launcher is all about. But please do further research; you will find info literally everywhere you go on this forum, and I can guarantee that you will be able to fully understand 3DS hacking.
