A swap magic would do it. Other than that, only a mod chip... as far as I know.

That kinda looks hard , compared to Sega versions .

Buy a series s, and then buy the developer kit. You can play every single console within 20 minutes.

Option 1: Emulation. If you have a DVD drive on your PC, you can easily dump your games. PS1 emulators aren't very demanding.
Option 2: Free McBoot / MechaPwn. Look it up. Here's an overview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhFYwCPSZns

I used to use a swap disk back in the day and it really wasn't. At least with the one I had. You just turn on your system, put the disk in, wait for it to tell you it's ready, then get your little plastic thing-a-ma-jigger out, stick it in between the tray and where the tray comes out, hook it, pull it out, swap the magic disk for the disk you want to play, push it back in and hit the corresponding button on the controller. Done and done.

Yes, you are correct. As far as I know, it didn't work on the Slim.

Understandable, but there's no reason to be. It's very simple lol.
