Adding VWF to a SNES game

I would like to know how to add a VWF to replace the menu text in Fire Emblem Mystery of the Emblem for SNES. The game already has a VWF for the dialogue text but the menu uses a different text that looks awful and doesn't fit properly. Any advice on where to start with something like this?  I'd say I'm intermediate with romhacking and a beginner with ASM. Any help would be appreciated.


I saw this passing by in a chat:

I'm not sure if it should be considered best practice for a VWF but it could serve as a starting point. I'd like to help more but I have no Fire Emblem hacking knowledge. A disassembly of the relevant menu bank(s) would certainly help your case.


What FE knowledge hacking knowledge would you need? I know a lot about it. Specifically where things occur in the Rom. Not any assembly though


Assembly is your friend. I recommend learning asm and you'll be a great wizard.
