it's a save-state. some gba won't technically need save states if files can be saved to the system memory/sd card. have no worries, things will work out.

I hope so because there are levels in which I hate repeating on some games *Yoshi's dizzy level for one.

You'll be able to save the game as normal.

Suspend function (Wii) just lets you pause the game and return to the home menu. When you reload the game, you pick up where you left off.

Restore points (3DS) are basically save states. You can make a restore point, continue playing for awhile, even exit the game, whatever. When you load a restore point, it returns everything in the game to its prior state, including save files.

You mean like a .sav file?

well, normal gba games save flash memory to the cart. emulated ones, i would imagine, would have some sort of save file (.sav or whatever) because obviously there is no cart to save to.
