That would offer no challenges at all and rom hacking is all about being mathematically stimulating learning process! Not everyone just understands it. Unless done like that, it's just game-developing. Some like being game developers, others rom hackers. I want to belong to the latter one.
But of course GBA hacking can be made really difficult too, but the fact stands still that GB/C and GBA engines are not the same.

2. Some people actually like Gameboy graphics!

3. FireRed is overrated. If you wanted to hack a GBA pokemon game, why not hack Emerald instead? Because of a fewer amount of people who have contributed into creating game-specific tools for that game possibly of course...
