The main reason they made B2/W2 for the DS instead of 3DS was to ensure compatibility with Black and White since you can trade and battle with those games.

3DS games are specially made with a thicker cartridge that cannot be inserted into the regular DS, and if you made B/W for DS and B2/W2 with 3DS the games would not work with each other and also the Poke Transfer would not work given it requires a second DS with a 4th Generation game.

So yeah, that's the main reason why the games were not made specially for 3DS, and DS games can be played on a 3DS anyway.
Nintendo would be able to work out a way to do it
They would be compatible as long as the data structure stayed the same and all the changed was the Graphics
