Sorry but what would it mean to mod them?

"Mod" is short for "Modify". In gaming (Especially PC gaming), "Modding" a game essentially consists of modifying anything such as: Visuals, animations, mechanics, gore, difficulty, etc. Naturally, there's a limit to what can be done, but Bethesda games (Elder Scrolls & Fallout) are notorious for being incredibly easy to mod due to the engine they run on (The image is an in-game screenshot of a heavily modded Skyrim, to give you an example of what the mods are capable of) , and many of Valve's games are extremely easy to mod as well due to the Source engine being so flexible. Another popular mod is DayZ. DayZ itself is actually a "modded" version of Arma 2 that was entirely reworked to incorporate survival mechanics like broken limbs, bleeding, exhaustion, infection, etc. it's not an actual game created by a huge studio, it was entirely created by 1 guy and eventually grew to be run by the entire community

In the content, by modding duck hunt, it basically means he'd be able to write in extra lines in the script and adding models & textures (Or in this case, Sprites, since it's a 2D game and didn't use 3D models at the time) so that it would appear as though the dog was bleeding to death after he shot it (In the original game, shooting the dog would just make it laugh or something, I can't quite remember, it's been a very long time)

I want someone to make a video game of my home town like grand theft auto, so i can kill my neighbor and not go to jail

Don't think that'll happen as it wouldn't be consumer friendly. The survival difficulty of a GTA: Australia would be too damn high.
So you stole a car, and are fleeing from the crime scene? Would be a shame if 100 Kangaroos were to run into your car...

I would want my kids to play oldschool games because this way it teaches them to appreciate the games that we do have, instead of calling a game sucks because of it's graphics. I used to babysit a 9 year old (now 10) and thanks to me he appreciates old games, mainly Megaman! He even told me flat out that Megaman's 9 and 10 looked better than some of the games he's played! If I could teach that to my kids, that would mean the world to me as then they won't be controlled by what's all the rage.

good luck burning your modded game onto a Nes Rom chip and soldering it

I doubt there are many video game programmers capable (or simply patient enough) to mod games on old consoles.
Why ? Usually, they are written in assembly language: one of the low-level programming languages (not the lowest level though). It is not that difficult to learn, but it's time consuming to write even the simplest of functions. You'd have to learn all of the specific sets of instructions for the type of console you're programming on, you'd have to get adjusted to working with really small values (4,8 or 16 bits) as opposed to 32 / 64 bits of modern machines, and really small memories (though 1kb of ram is usually more than enough for these games) and you'd basically just have to write every single little pixel.

Nowadays, in the gaming industry, there's a thick layer of abstraction lain over the low level functions. It's not exactly easier to do it, but you get more "powerful" tools - powerful in the sense that you don't have to write everything from scratch.

I want to do this now and get ready for my future child. But I won't make it where you can just shoot the dog and it dies, no I want my child to get emotionally attached to this fictional dog. The look and sounds my child will give me when they comes crying to me will satisfying..... Now that I am thinking of it, I am gonna be a horrible dad.....

one of the easiest ways to do this is with a flash cart www.retrousb.com/product_info.php?products_id=34 and just modding the code on a computer
