Just out of curiousity, what is a table file, do they exist for Gen III, and where/how do I get/use it?
Yes, you can write a table file for (almost) any existing game (and not going to mention which are the expectional cases but yeah).

Table file is just a normal txt-file (made with Notepad for instance) that contains letters and their hexadecimal numbers (which differ in almost every game - those depend on how the game is programmed to load the graphics of font).

Part of table file for GSC

Spoiler:

80=A
81=B
82=C
...
A0=a
A1=b
A2=c


So, ABC is written as 80 81 82 in the ROM and abc as A0 A1 A2.
And by loading the table file with a hex editor, you can easily search for text and edit it.

There is a table file for FireRed here: http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,13825.0.html
