I don't want to start an off-topic going discussion here but I just reply to this one issue here and there we go.

Yes actually, isn't the main goal of hacking to create a Pokemon game.Either similar to the already existing games from Gamefreak ,or otherwise you own style.
Not really. Rom Hacking is game modification which can be achieved in several different ways. If someone had the knowledge and interest to do so, he could for example modify the battle system so that during battles, Speed would not determine which pokemon will be able to react first. Instead, it could work like Active Time Battle system introduced in several RPG games.

Almost everything is possible, not just re-creating a region in the ways similar to that of Gamefreak. There is no standard definition on what hacking should mean related to hacking pokemon games.
