The best emulator I know is Gameboid, a GBA emulator.

However, please be aware that nobody here can tell you where to download the files required, as it is illegal to do so.

Gameboid uses on screen keys. Make sure the virtual keypad is enabled in the settings.

You can assign the trackball as the D-Pad and use back and search as A + B, but it's not very easy to control it that way.

I think you need to update your version of Gameboid; that doesn't look much like the latest release.

You can if you're running custom firmware (which I'm guessing you're not). Some of the more recent ROMs allow you to overclock the hero to 690MHz which does seem to make things a bit smoother.

When I was on a stock ROM, I always found using a task killer to free up some RAM helped.

The latest release of Gameboid can increase the speed (from x1.5 to x8 or something crazy like that).

But I found that above x3 the hero's procesor was struggling and it didn't make much difference. (And that was running at 690MHz)
