How would i do a ROM hack.

Hellloooo! I have carefully thought out my plans for a pokémon USUM ROM hack. I'm excited about it. I just have one problem. How would i do a ROM hack? if anyone knows how, help would be super appreciated.

I don't know a lot about ROM hacking but the link that myuma posted seems to have a lot of good resources!

Also, from what I've seen created, I'm not sure you can make a hack of USUM or any 3DS/DS game as a casual user. Most ROM hacks I've ever seen have been FireRed, Emerald, or Crystal!

3DS ROM hacks definitely exist (example), but you're not going to get very far without a decent amount of programming experience. Like Sandstone-Shadow said, the easiest base to start from is probably one of the GBA games, like FireRed or Emerald. There are a lot of great resources at The Pokécommunity that can help you get started!
