IIRC (too lazy to go double check) the OS on all mobile Nintendo gaming devices can be modified, but you have to have a cart/compatible media storage/somehow interfaced alternative storage device (i.e. a flashcart and a MicroSD :3 ) volume with code that will modify it, and a way to run this code.
Seems risky to me, as the OS could not be modified any other way and if you screw it up or modify it so that it cannot be changed again, you've essentially bricked a device.
Sir! Sir? Ah yes!
Yes, you sir! You seem to have lost something!
Oh? You don't know? You've lost the game, comrade. Good day!

No I don't think so. IIRC The GB family has a ROM chip, The DS doesn't seem to be moddable, only the DSI and the 3DS have updates.

In that case, I see a good googling would've gone a long way for me :P
DS Lite is definitely moddable, though: I've used programs that will do that for me, and will also skip the DS OS and go straight to the flashcart.

I'm not dead, I swear.
Update time:
The project is moving forward, slowly. (I like to get hung up on design issues)
There's more documentation than code at this point, mainly because very little has yet been implemented.
I'll update my sig with it, but the code's on GitHub and can be found at https://github.com/calcdude84se/partesos/
A note on the source code: I'm using Code Browser (http://tibleiz.net/code-browser/) and loving it; the source code is best read with it. The z80 language definition I made for it is attached to this post; you should use it if you use Code Browser.

Spoiler For "PartesOS links":
I'll put it online when it does something.
