Welcome to the site, Jet Dragon! 

I'm not sure that something like that exists, but between using emulators, you can basically do that yourself. It should be possible to save PJ64 settings (like where to find your ROM library) within a zip file including these ROM Hacks so that someone on a different computer could theoretically open an emulator and play any of the hacks they want.

However, ROM sharing, even with hacks, is illegal. So sharing something with so many altered N64 titles could really spell a lawsuit. Plus, while ROM files on average are less than 100 mb per ROM (average is 64mb) an entire set of ROMs and hacks would take up a LOT of space.

I do think it would be cool if Nintendo or someone  like Valve with Steam, could anthologize these games and hacks in the form of a large database made playable (basically self emulating from a server online) for, like, a monthly subscription fee... like Netflix for Nintendo games. 

Itd be a clever pitch and a neat way to get people playing their games again. Plus, profit for Nintendo and supporting game developers would be a positive.

As Banjofreak stated you can basically just make a folder and fill it up with roms then set that folder as the directory for your roms so somehow figuring something like that out would be kinda pointless if even possible. This input is probably unless though because I'm just restating what he said but yeah. Lol
