No. The second slot on the DS and DS Lite will only play Game Boy Advance games. It will not play games made for the Game Boy or Game Boy Color.

Yes--in a way. Game Boy games are, like the Wii's Virtual Console service, available for download from the Nintendo 3DS's eShop. There is no GBA slot on the 3DS, so this is the only way to play Game Boy or Game Boy Color games on the system.

No. VisualBoy Advance only supports Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games.

You can't unless that gameboy game is a downloadable game on PlayStation Store. Maybe your thinking about the Nintendo DS? That can play Nintendo DS games and Gameboy games.

Playing Game Boy Advance games on the Nintendo GameCube requires the use of the Nintendo Game Boy Player, a separate hardware accessory that attaches to the bottom of the GameCube. Use of the Nintendo Game Boy Player allows Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games to be played on the television or other display to which the GameCube is connected. Also, handheld systems that play Game Boy Advance games can be connected to the GameCube and/or Game Boy Player in order to act as controllers.

No, you cannot play game boy advance games in Nintendo DSi because it is too thin to fit a game boy cartridge.
