Not available for the Raspberry Pi 1. lr-ppsspp has the convenience of retroarch controller configs, but standalone ppsspp has the best performance and compatibility.

PSP COMPATIBILITY LIST feel free to contribute!

PSP Compatibility List - Overclocked Pi 3B feel free to contribute as well.

This is mostly a selection of PSP games that were tested against an overclocked Raspberry Pi 3B paired with the setting suggestions for PPSSPP in the Enhancement section below, having the CPU-Governor set to Force Performance, and using ISOs instead of CSOs to avoid wasting processing power on compression.

From the RetroPie Subreddit

What I've done so far with a very noticeable difference is set frameskip to 2 (will probably increase this a bit) Turn on auto frameskip (will limit frame skipping to whatever you set for the previous value) then tick Prevent FPS from exceeding 60.

After that you want to change rendering resolution to 2x1, this will make everything look better on bigger screens.

Then you want to goto the audio menu and set Audio Latency to high.

This will cause numerous games to no longer render properly due to the renderer being changed to "Buffered rendering" because of the "Auto frameskip" being turned on. "Frameskip" in general can cause black frames depending on if the chosen game runs at an odd or even framerate and the accompanying frameskip isn't set to a matching odd or even number.
