I saw different makefile and a version is working on Pandora.
But I'm not a coder... Maybe it's a lot more hard to port on GCW

It shouldn't be hard to port.
The issue is that this source code has missing code !
Notably, it lacks the guichan header files.

I tried the pandora build but this does not suceed, same issue. I wonder how they managed to build it for the Pandora.
It's probably not that version

I know Goldeneye is a Nintendo 64 game but is it possible to make the ROM standalone with new controls?

Goldeneye is a RARE game so it's not legally possible to make a standalone OPK.
Plus i don't think Mupen64Plus emulates that game very well...
A frontend for Mupen64Plus would be a better idea but nobody is currently working on it sadly.

Would Xash3D be possible? I know there's a Pandora and Android versions, so could the Zero run it?

Yeah, it should. should...
The problem is that etnaviv is kind of crappy at the moment so i bet the game will not even boot (or look properly).
I'll wait until the next firmware gets released.

Is NullPomino possible to port?

It's a great open source Tetris.

Download: https://nullpomino.en.uptodown.com/windows .

it's programmed in Java, and Java is slow as hell on the GCW-Zero. (because Java will probably never have a jit for MIPS)

It should be possible on the Pandora/Pyra though (Minecraft runs on it after all) but i don't have one.

What language should I look for in a Tetris game? There are tons of these and I just want to see one ported someday.

My guess would be something written in C or Python. And games using SDL library.

Yes, Aeter is correct. C/C++ are the way to go.
As far graphics is concerned, SDL is preferred. But OpenGL ES 1.x is also okay. (OpenGL 1.x might work too, depending on the game)

If it's in Python, it could work too but i'm not used to that language.

Actually no, FS-UAE is based on WinUAE (i think) while UAE4ALL is based on a very old version of UAE  (but fast)
that is only capable of emulating the Amiga 500.

I actually don't know its dependencies but surely, there must be a reason why no one has attempted it.
It's fairly CPU-intensive too
