So I want to know if someone could create a Zelda game like the ones for GBC is possible on LowRes NX?

Yes, it is possible, but it's a lot of work. If you want to start with something more simple, you could use this game as a base:

What kind of things would I need to learn?

If you never programmed before (or only a bit), I recommend to start with my tutorial: https://lowresnx.inutilis.com/topic.php?id=306

It's not about games yet, but it's the base for everything else.

Ye, you are right, a kinda cool game :3
A port (a minimal, because LRNX doesn’t have space to store all these maps), could be possible (?).

I think it would be possible to create a game with the size of Zelda in LowRes NX. These games usually had systems to compress the map data, for example using meta tiles. This is technically possible in LowRes NX, but you would need special tools to edit your maps.
Anyway, it’s better to make small games, if you don’t have a team of 5 people and don’t want to work 2 years on your game ;)
