What is a homebrew ROM? I mean I know what a regular ROM is for a game like Super Mario 64 but I've never heard of a homebrew ROM.

It's the same thing, only with homebrew. On most platforms, homebrew binaries are the same format as commercial games. e.g. on the DS, both homebrew and "ROMs" are .NDS files (well, in the homebrew scene. Internally in Nintendo, NDS binaries are .SRL files).

So a "homebrew ROM" is a NDS file made using devkitARM and libNDS (NDS equivalent of devkitPPC and libOGC for the Wii, the toolchain and SDK used for creating homebrew). Whereas a "commercial ROM" is one built using the official Nintendo SDK (AFAIK, for the DS it is named Nitro SDK or something like that, after the DS's codename during production).

Hope that clarifies the issue.

Yeah public domain roms are fine of course.
