    Don't know of SNES. But there is an NES one called vNES light. Also Purple Cherry is a gameboy color emulator. Both work well and can be downloaded for free

    When you open vnes hit the + button at the bottom then hit the help button. Detailed instructions are there.

    Purple Cherry, vNES, and Blue Tomato are all XNA-based, which is harder to do than just porting over something in native code.

    For WP8, it should be easier to do stuff like that, if the developer interest is there. There IS already an SNES emulator on Windows RT, so it shouldn't be that difficult for the developer to port it to the phone, for example.

    vNESlight is a great emulator, but the controls are terrible. They don't seem bad until you try to actually play through any game. Maybe others will have better luck, but I'd hold off until they improve the controls.
