Would be cool if Virtual Boy was added to the platforms available on 3DS eShop, Wario Land a choice few others were cool games.

That's never gonna happen. Ignoring the lack of interest (because, you know, Virtual Boy), emulating something like the Virtual Boy is understandably difficult.

Yup. There are maybe four games people would actually play (Mario Clash, Teleroboxer, Virtual Boy Wario Land, and Mario's Tennis). I believe the tech behind the way Vritual Boy handled creating a 3D image would be something difficult to pull off without completely recoding the game. It only draws one line at a time and refreshes rapidly.

Although I'd specifically like to play that Wario game and Mario Clash is actually nifty. Maybe they could do remakes or sequels at some point.

Not only that, but Nintendo doesn't even recognize the Virtual Boy exists on their website company timeline....

It's too bad they choose not to remember that time when they tried putting dual d-pads on a controller so that we might have dual analog sticks on our handhelds.
