EDIT: I screwed up and gave up Paint Roller's address as Nightmare's; also added Meta Knight's address because he does have AI

ROM addresses:

Moon
984F7C
Sun
984FA8
Whispy
988944
Nightmare Orb
987B20
Nightmare
985D58
Metaknight
985D00
Paint Roller
987AC8

The rest can be found using a golden rule of ROM values
For some reason, instead of using multipliers (x1.35, x1.6, x1.8 ) they used 16 bit values that are called depending on the number of players
-Format-
1111222233334444
1= one player only, 2 = two players and so on

Golden rule for: DeDeDe
64008700A000B400
Golden rule for: Paint Roller, kracko, Heavy Mole and Metaknight (whispy, Nightmare Orb and Nightmare also apply)
3C00510060006C00
Golden rule for: bonkers, phan phan and bugzzy (Sun and mooon also apply)
1e00280030003600
Golden rule for: Fire Lion
1B0024002B003000
Golden rule for: Mr tick tock
1A00230029002E00
Golden rule for: Wheelie
1900210028002D00
Golden rule for: Poppy Bros
1800200026002B00
Golden rule for: Mr Frosty
16001D0023002700


Motivation: Bosses barely stand a chance to show off what little they got, so I wanted to buff up their pitiful HP
hence why I had no interest of finding their exact addresses
5 times their HP seemed a good value to me except for Nightmare orb (would be unwinnable) and nightmare (would take eons to beat)

For DeDeDe I used 540HP as base with 1.15, 1.2 and 1.25 as multipliers instead of 1.35 1.6 and 1.8 respectively

TL;DR
-What I want: Increase the health of the bosses within the .gba ROM
-What I lack: Knowledge to find such addresses

LONG STORY:
I'm experienced with Hexadecimal, binary, hex-editors and all that basic crap
I have made my own ActionReplay, Codebreaker, GameShark, JokerCommands, whatever-you-call-them codes
But I'm new to this ROM hacking mess

I can grasp how the emulator assigns some masks such as 05-Palette, 03-IRAM, and 08-ROM that are displayed on the memory viewer
I have Googled over 2 hours and all I find are lame guides that tell you what is hexadecimal & binary, then they proceed to middle-finger the reader by teaching you how to be a mindless script-kiddie by using a specific software to edit a specific game (pokemon tends to be such cancer over google), making you waste your time for no reason.

The best guide I have stumbled with is one that says "hey, go edit any random address in the hex-editor and then see what happens until you are 60+years old"
Seriously? the only way to find an address is just by trial-and-error?

Isn't there another way to work around?
