Depends on what emulator it is running (that is, if the emulator supports cheats). If it is the official Nintendo emulators, it is safe to say that no, they won't program support for it.

As Mike says, the official emu doesn't support it. Retroarch supports cheats, though.

But also, Game Genie Guy can be used to bake GG codes into ROMs themselves. Then you can upload that ROM to the Mini and have the effect you desire.

It doesn't always work, I'm not 100% on the small intricacies, but it works for a lot of things.

Unofficially, it is also possible to upload multiple other emulators to the mini NES/SNES, including emulators for other platforms (Sega Genesis, TG-16...). In other words, your Game Genie codes can be used, with a little bit of work.

It might be a tender subject, so I'll just say you can find more information on the Google.
