    Download the emulator (ZSNES). Then get some ROMs from either Edge Emulation, Emuparadise, or The Rom Hustler.

    Once you've gotten that far, put the ROM you downloaded into the same folder where you put ZSNES. Now, try to open the ROM you downloaded and it'll ask you what you want to open it with, then just navagate to ZSNES and tick "Always use this Program blah blah blah". Easy as that.

    Well you can do it the regular way just by finding a save point in the game. Or you can save the state, Game -> Save State. Then whenever you play that game agian just Game -> Open State.
