Ah hey there Beautifly. Welcome aboard to our own little spot in the Internet. :) Despite being like a dot in the ginormous list of websites, PC's quite a huge place! I understand how you can get lost and confused with how to navigate it, especially that whopper of an Emulation (www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=156) section. D:
To answer your question, all hacks of the kind you mentioned (the ones that aren't just simple hard modes or just making every Pokémon obtainable in-game) only fall in two sections, the Hacks Showcase (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=184), and the Progressing Hacks (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=67). Honestly, I'm not sure how you can easily look for specific hacks in those two places, because there doesn't seem to be a database of active hacks in it that I know of. :\ Still, I personally think that the search function does the trick, like when I'm looking for a specific hack related to my preferences. Here's the advanced search page for Hacks Showcase (http://www.pokecommunity.com/search.php?f=184), and here's the one for Progressing Hacks (http://www.pokecommunity.com/search.php?f=67). It's not too reliable, but it's a start. Sometimes, er, probably most of the time, you have to just look at each hack thread that seems to be related solely based on the hack title and that little preview that you get from hovering over the thread title. ^^; Tedious, but what can you do. As for the last option that I could think of, you could always search Google with appropriate keywords for hacks, since most of the time it redirects you back to PC's Emulation section anyway, haha.
Still, you should know that this type of thread does not belong in this section. If you look at other threads in New Users / Welcome, they're all introduction threads meant to get themselves known (or reintroduced) to the community (you already made a proper intro thread before, which means you should know what I'm talking about). So questions like these don't fit that mold, sadly. :( We have a section (and a thread) for this, though! It's called the PokéCommunity Questions & Feedback (http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4), while all simple "how do I do this in PC or where do I find this in PC" questions like yours go to the Quick Questions & Answers thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=246590). :) So next time you have a question similar to this, go straight to those two links. :3
