An ESA-protected ROM file is basically a ROM file protected by the ESA: the Entertainment Software Association. This is a large group of many developers and publishers. The ESA are in charge of many things, such as international anti-piracy actions. If you don't want to get into any trouble, don't download them.

Are ROMs not protected by the ESA legal?

"ESA protection" means that the company that published the game is a member of the ESA. The ESA actively pursues those who host illegal copies of member's games. Not being covered by the ESA does not mean that the ROM can be legally downloaded, just that the ESA does not enforce copyright on that game. The company that published the game (if still in business) can still enforce their copyright and sue both hosters and downloaders ofthe ROM image.
