What's difference between VBA and mGBA? They run the same, don't they?

Also, can I use MyBoy on mobile?

You need mGBA to get your run approved for the leaderboards.

Why though? VBA, My Boy and mGBA run roms just as good. The roms don't run differently. I've tested in the past

Plus I've seen speedrunners use VBA on YouTube.

mGBA is the only allowed emulator because it's the only one that comes close to emulating loads, saves, etc accurately. VBA is wildly inaccurate, and why would using mGBA be an issue of any kind?

mGBA doesn't run well on my laptop, while VBA runs swell. Also, another question, is there a section for randomisers? If so, can you link it?

The closest you get to that are category extensions, which for these games can be found here:

There are no boards for randomizers.

which category in there would I put any of my randomizer runs?

"There are no boards for randomizers."
There are no places to submit them, I just linked the category extensions so you could have a look at the alternate categories you could run instead of any%.
