Is Emulating GBA roms legal?
YES - Despite false claims by Nintendo that emulation
as such is illegal they (Nintendo Of America Ltd.) have registered
a US Patent for GAMEBOY EMULATOR ( here - US Patent N# 6,672,963 )

being illegal have NO credibility as acquiring a patent for
something that is illegal wouldn't be possible.
Emulator is needed only if you are going to play backup Gameboy Games that is GBA ROMS on PC. With multicarts you do not need it - just put the cartridge in the GBA/GBASP or Nintendo DS and play the same way you play games from any other game cartridge. Only difference you will notice is the boot menu for selecting games.
