    Right behind you
    1. You could with a lot of effort, but why you would want to is another story. You'd lose the ability to play games. Now if you mean as an app, again, you could but I don't see what you would gain.

    2. Possibly.

    3. My personal opinion is these would be a stretch. I could see a perfect n64 emu.

    The answer to almost all your questions:
    Possibly, but no one will be arsed to because it's WAY too much work.

    1. No, you can't sign the Firmware, so the 3DS won't run anything from NAND. You can boot into such a firmware/os from haxx, yes.
    2. Possible, but that is much, much work.
