Hey guys!
I'm new to the forum and thought I'd contribute to the tutorial page because there aren't many Pokemon G/S hacks out there and I'm hoping there'll be more if i give some information on hacking Trainers.
First, you'll need a good Hex Editor (I use Windhex) and a proper RBYGS table file. Next, you'll need, obviously, a Pokemon Silver or Gold ROM.
Open the ROM in your hex editor of choice, with the correct table file. Now firstly, the Trainer Data is setup very differently in different parts of the ROM. Some will just give (PKMNLVL PKMN PKMNLVl PKMN FF) this is the most basic trainer setup. Remember, right before this, there is the Trainer's name followed by 50 00, 00 50, or 50 02, or something similar to that. The next Trainer format is (PKMNLVL PKMN MOVE MOVE MOVE MOVE ETC.) SO BE CAREFUL WHEN EDITING THOSE.
Now, to get to the Trainer you need to edit, just search their name in the Text Search part of your Hex Editor, remember that their name will be in hex, too, so don't overwrite that data unless you know what you're doing! If you need a more specific location, the Trainer Teams start at around 0399CB.

I happened to make one of my own just like one and half a month ago :D
*It's in 2nd page of Tutorials -section now.

"Remember, right before this, there is the Trainer's name followed by 50 00, 00 50, or 50 02, or something similar to that."

The name of the trainer can be followed by 1) 50 00, 2) 50 01 or 3) 50 02 depending on the situation;
1) The pokemon the trainer has have no special moves
2) The pokemon have special moves
3) No special moves but an item is attached to the pokemon the trainer has

Other items the trainer has (for example Full Restores) aren't any part of the trainer data and I don't know if anyone has found out where they are located.

You can just search for the Gym leaders names in a hex editor.
