first of all my name isnt dude....
second VBA doesnt seem to want to play any "original" games, its a known issue. I dont know what the status is with the other emulators...so you could try RascalBoy and no$gba to see if they boot on those

Dude, seriouisly, here is what I do when I want to play classic games:

I still have my NES system, and it's hooked up to a 32 inch flat screen TV. :D

Since I own nearly every NES game, I can happily say that I can use PocketNES on my GBA Flash Cart legally. This is the way to play NES games on your GBA!

Or get a boring EMU for your PC (Well, the one that has Netplay = good!)

No emulators will work because they don't implement prefetch emulation. The latest CVS version does and will work. The games seems to have 3 types of protection:

1. sram detection
2. lack of prefetch emulation
3. lack of mirroring of rom image (causes slow responsiveness of controls)

VBA now emulates #2 and #1 can be avoided by setting the save type. #3 just needs the file to be bigger (duplicate the contents at the end).

Does the actual GBA play original nintendo games. I think it does for some but if I remeber correctly some don't work so it may not be the emulator but the actual GBA hardware itself.
