    Go to your ROMS folder using WinSCP or w/e your FTP program is.
    Open the GBA folder.
    Your roms will be in there.
    Right click a rom and go to Rename (Or just click it and press F2).
    Rename the file but put .gba on the end.
    So if it is originally gbaroms.net-mariokartsupercircuit_usa.gba rename it to Mario Kart Super Circuit.gba

    Nope, feel free to change it without worrying that anything will be screwed up. If you change it after you play and save it though, make sure to rename the save file to the same thing.
