    Many tools do many things- there is no one all encompassing tool or set thereof though.
    However Megaman zero collection we were playing with earlier today, I warn you though it is perhaps not quite suited to a first hack unless you already know what you are doing:

    As you can see overlay9_0000 is where that was at (credits and menu related stuff by the looks of things)- it is compressed but crystaltile2 made short work of that (right click and press use the extract(U) option).
    Thread on the new crystaltile2: http://gbatemp.net/t232718-crystaltile2-2010-06-12
    I mirrored it on filetrip earlier as well http://filetrip.net/f11824-CrystalTile2-2010-06-12.html

    It is a custom table (I am still not sure if it is two tables) but it is relative text making it fairly easy to make a new one.
    Tables are simple enough- just past the codebox sections into a blank text file and save with extension .tbl
    CODE05=A
    06=B
    07=C
    08=D
    09=E
    0A=F

    You might also want to speak to LuigiBlood who is doing a French translation over at http://gbatemp.net/t233017-megaman-zero-co...nch-translation . No sense in replicating work if you do not have to.

    2F=k
    30=l
    31=m
    32=n
    33=o
    34=p
    35=q
    36=r
    37=s
    38=t
    39=u
    3A=v
    3B=w
    3C=x
    3D=y
    3E=z
    CA=!
    CC=#
    CE=%
    CF=&
    D0='
    D1=(
    D2=)
    D3=*
    D4=+
    D5=.

    DF=]
    E0=_
    E1=~
    E5=.
    E8=,
    E9="
    EC=-
    ED=;
    Character 40 to C9 are Japanese chars. (In the Main Menu)

    F1 makes the text White.
    F2 makes the text Red.
    FC is a new line command.
