    First, read your holy bible. 3ds.guide

    Second, no CFW currently will let you load .3DS roms from home menu. You need to install .CIA files using FBI or something similar instead.

    So unlike the WiiU where the titles are on the home menu, 3DS is unable to do the same for a simple click-n-play?

    No, you just need .CIA files instead of .3DS files.

    Yes, every last step of the guide and for the love of god don't skip making a NAND backup like that other idiot... Make sure to keep a copy of your otp.bin in a safe place too.

    Get a flashcard /s
    Convert them to CIA if necessary (or you know... find a cia version of it)

    You can't do anything with .3ds files with CFW.

    useless they are for 3ds flashcards . . . if you want you can convert them to .cia and use them
    [Tutorial] Convert .3DS To .CIA Easy And Fast!

    . . . but what you should do is . . . install freeshop (due to a dcma takedown i cant link it here) then you can download (pirate) directly from nintendo servers

    Convert them with Decrypt9, or find them in .CIA format. Or better yet, install freeShop and use that to get all your games directly from Nintendo's servers, it's really simple and almost all popular games are available there. It's also faster than downloading + copying + installing a CIA or converting a .3DS rom.
    FreeShop is available on http://freeshop.pw/ but you also need the QR code for the title keys, which I can't link you here.

    freeShop removed the logo that was the cause of the DMCA takedown, so it should be fine to link to.

    Cant install .3ds games, need to be converted to .cia.

    As for cia you cna use FBI, or you can also download freeshop, that would be it.

    Find that "title key" site on google, there's a QR button, click on it, and scan the QR code with freeshop.
