    I can't figure it out, is there a way to do it? If so, can someone post a link/video?

    The app is called "gpSPhone" on Cydia. Buy it, then load .rom files (games; google it) using iPhone explorer or equivalent computer application

    You also need to place the gba_bios.bin file in the same folder as the same folder as the ROMs in order to get it to work. I got it working on my iP4 today actually. You can google gba_bios.bin and then SSH it into the GBA folder.

    You have to download OpenSSH from Cydia and WinSCP(Windows)/Cyberduck(Mac) onto your computer. You input your WiFi IP, username: root, password: alpine.

    Open up var/mobile/ROMs/GBA and drop in your ROMs and the gba_bios.bin into that folder.

    I have used open ssh for custom sms tones successfully. So does this mean I dont need to download gpSphone? I have the gba_bios.bin. All I need to do is download ROMs from the internet?

    No, you need gpshone to actually play the roms :p The lack of wiimote support blows, but at least snes4iphone has it.

    also, since i have never used ROMs before, can a ROM be in a .zip? will it work if i drag the .zip in the ROM/GBA folder?

    SSH is the easiest thing in the world. I was confused as well, but got a basic understanding of it within a few minutes. Get the emulator from Cydia. Right now they have NES, SNES, GB, GBA, PSX,N64, Arcade and Genesis emulators as far as I know, though the Genesis one is broken. All the emulators, except for the GBA one, come with everything needed to play ROMS. You need to download a BIOS file for the GBA emulator once you downloaded gpsphone. Drag the Bios into var/mobile/media/ROMS/GBA. After that, go download ROMS, which can be found anywhere. Once downloaded, just drag the ROM into var/mobile/media/ROMS/GBA and you are set.
