    Some games work, some don't.

    You just have to try it when it comes out.

    Sometimes. It's best done on simpler games that don't save language specific things like character names.

    It'll work for Pokemon D/P. But not really recommended.

    It should work. Most games will work like that but it's only if the ROMs are identical besides the language.
