but I've come here because I'm not sure it's possible, and frankly not sure where to start.
I'm an app/web developer that has absolutely 0 experience in rom modification.

To keep it short, I have an idtea that I want to bring to Twitch (twitch.tv) that involves both combining your average Twitch Plays bot (this is unimportant even if you're unfamiliar) and a modified Chrono Trigger rom.

I want to know if it would be possible to modify a Chrono Trigger rom to apply various effects to the party/party members on input combinations pressed simultaneously or in rapid succession, for example...

A+B+START = reduce the party health by half
B+L+SELECT = lower single party member's health by x
START+R+B = lower single party member's mp by x
SELECT+START+R = kill single party member
SELECT+START+L = change party member's equipment (to something in inventory)

stuff like that, and possibly more. Is this kind of thing feasible, and how hard would you say it is?

Checking simultaneous input would be easier. Do you need rapid succession in order, or would L START SELECT work? What counts as rapid succession?
