Visual Boy Advance-M is the best emulator for the GBA.

higan is the only emulator that properly emulates the Super Game Boy, though the quality of its Game Boy emulation is inferior to that of other emulators, unless one hunts down an older version of bsnes, which used the Gambatte core for its Super Game Boy functionality.
