    00.app is the images and sound, yes.

    Depending on which NANDLoader you're using in the WAD, 01 and 02.app will vary between the actual DOL and the NANDLoader. In other words, either one.

    Any additional .app files are usually used in Virtual Console for things such as save banners, etc.

    The .trailer file is illegal and not needed. The WAD never uses it. it's a copy of an illegal 00.app accidentally put in most WADs.

    The .tmd means Title Metadata and stores information about the title.

    The .tik stores the 4-character title ID.

    Accorting to WiiBrew, the .cert is used to sign the WAD.

    Thx for your replies guys.

    Its the problem that I have a wad file which I need to modify to run on my Wii.

    Therefor something must be edited. But what does need editing?

    I have a PAL 3.2 Wii BTW.

    And how do I open the files to edit them, hex only?

    There is something what really disturbs me, what is responsible to check if a wad can be installed on the Wii or not?

    Wad manager typically fails hard when you feed it a malformed WAD. If you want to be a little more cautious, you can use wadunpack/wadpack to...well, unpack and repack the WAD. It should throw an error if it runs into anything obvious, missing files, etc. Not a foolproof way to avoid a banner brick, but not necessarily a bad idea either.

    In what way do you mean modify? What's stopping it from running?

    If you grab the WADder.net Portapack, there are tons of tools that can help you edit it included. As for opening and viewing the files in a WAD, I recommend EWES by pbsds. It's written in autoit, but has a built-in WAD browser that lets you extract, view, copy, replace, etc files in the WAD.
