This wiki page shows you a number of disassembly tutorials.

I can't comment on the motherboard fitting a RetroFlag Pi case.

Thanks for the wiki dissamble its the difficult part because the battery its solder to the motherboard,but i want to know if i can put it in a retroflag pi gameboy handheld? im asking because the shell of my gcw zero its broken and i doesnt seem for ebay or another page to buy a original shell gcw zero.

I do not think it fits the RetroFlag Pi Gameboy shell. However, replacement shells were a thing for a while for the GCW Zero. Some of the third party stores had inventory. Not sure if anything is left from the stock they held.

Its bit sad i have a full working motherboard GCW Zero and i cant use it. Get a replamecent shell and button power for the GCW Zero its super difficul to obtain. Sure i have the switch button from psp but to move to on/off the slider psp button i need something to cover it... :( :-\
