Turn Snes Classic Mini into an Arcade Machine

Hi, i'm new and have a problem with SNES Classic Mini.
Currently i'm running roms from usb flash drive and OTG which powers the SNES Classic.
I gave up about using MAME as my emulator core for retroarch since it's slow. I remember mame being slow in the old times when i had a Pentium 1 MMX and ran MAME and then Run the old "Callus" Emulator for CPS1 roms. That's what i remember.
So i'm using FinalBurn 2016 core for retroarch. What i have read in its help file is that run multiple system, not too much as MAME but i like it. At least i can "save state" in SNES Classic Mini and it's faster.
Anyway i have the excel datasheet of arcade games and i wanted to know if there is a way to this:
The First Column is the zipped rom name and the Second one is the Game Title. Since Hackchi2 loads the zip files as a complete archive and assigns that zip filename to the Game Title. I was wondering if there is a way to "extract" rom name from the excel sheet and convert the zipped filename to Title.
I don't know if anyone has done this before. I know that it can be done throuw programming. Don't want to expend a lot of time making a software to do this. Is there a way? or i have to study how to make it in .NET and open up the datasheet and do it.
Thanks in advance.
@ateneouw This forum has nothing to do with the SNES classic, but with RetroPie.
However, for Arcade games' names, what you'll need is a DAT file for the romset - that's the database that keeps the link between the zip files the game name - and something like Clrmamepro or Romcenter, which can read those .dat files and show you the friendly names. Or you can get the Google doc file as an Excel file and open it in Excel or LibreOffice and you can do your filtering there.
