That's not a good way to preserve the lifetime of the hardware.

I've seen a fair few hacks from Sonic Retro and they test a lot of them for Cartridge based compatibility and even the slightest of changes can render a ROM unplayable on the console as well as many emulators. I don't know how much different it would be for GB line games but I can assume going overboard would not be kind on hardware or emulators alike.
