ROM hacks work in an emulator exactly like any other ROM.  If you're on Android and you are downloading patches, you will need to find some way to apply the patch to the ROM before you can use it.

UniPatcher on Android may be one such patching option.

Or the patcher built into this site that we are on. https://www.romhacking.net/patch/

Unipatcher is a great option. It is easy to use, I have patched roms from multiple systems, and it adds and removes headers as well. It can be found on play store for Free. Personally I don't like Retroarch for many reasons. You'd be much better off finding a system specific emulator, there's a lot of great ones for android out there
