GBA ROMs is the "code name" for GAMEBOY micro, GBA SP and Gameboy Advance Game backups. Backups are made by "dumping" that is reading out all information from GBA cartridges internal Read Only Memory chips. That is where the name ROM comes from - Read Only Memory. Some may ask, but is it really only read only because I can store the save games on the cartridge? Well the Game is stored in the ROM + there is also SRAM or EEPROM or FLASH memory that is reusable and stores the save game files. In addiction to that the cartridge can have a Real Time Clock inside for time triggered events, like the Pokemon games have, and Light sensors like Boktai or accellemeter as Kirby Pinball.
Is there a GBA File Extractor - there are tools that let you extract music from .gba rom files - rip GSF music.
