Well, what kind of patch is it? Different patches require different tools. If it is a .ips file (more than likely) you need a patcher such as Lunar IPS, which you can find here as well as a lot of other patchers. Also, I think I shall move this to Rom Hack.

You need also the unmodified rom to patch the ips-file with.
If you're for example trying to get some kind of Super Metroid .ips-file work you need to:
1. Open Lunar IPS
2. Open the Super Metroid IPS-file
3. Double-click on your Super Metroid rom.
4. You should have patched rom then.

I want to know how to make them. But I'll just google it. I'm sure they've got that info around somewhere.

If you're using Windows, Lunar IPS is your best bet, though there are several choices. All you need is the original ROM, the hacked ROM and a patching utility that can compare the two and make a list of changes, said list being the patch.
