Do you mean widgets?  Use something like ES File explorer to create them.  No need for us to do it.

I think this is a reasonable feature since most other emulators have it. Something to automatically just run a game without selecting options when tapped on the home screen.

We would (just) need to implement a widget that launches the activity with the correct intent parameters.  If someone wants to implement the widget (that's an API I know nothing about) then I'd be happy to provide guidance on the intent parameters (if it's not already obvious from our source code).
