    Why does some homebrew come with nds.gba and a .nds? What are they both for? I've been deleting the .gba.nds because it works with out it. What are they for?

    The .ds.gba and .sc.nds are for use woth slot 2 cards. the .ds.gba will be flashed to the card as a gba rom and is used in conjunction with a slot-1 card called a passme. This was once the only possible way to run ds homebrew. The .sc.nds are for supercards i believe, though i have had no experience with these.

    Yup, exactly. To clarify, .sc.nds files are actually .ds.gba files renamed so that the Supercard would boot them in DS mode instead of GBA mode. That's the only difference.
