CE? Well as far as I know a rom hack just changes the bytes in the file so any hex editor would technically work and CE does let you open a file, make changes, and save it (in 6.7 you have to explicitly save it, prior to that any changes were automatically saved to the file).

I think CE has a way to attach alternative binutils/disassemblers to it (since most roms don't use x86 assembly which is all CE supports by default), I've never used it so I don't know how it works... I also don't think it supports big endian values in the hex editor though which might be an slight annoyance, not sure how much since I don't usually with those myself.

If you haven't already you might look around where people have previously asked for the best hex editors for rom hacking, eg. http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=16348.0

If, by ROM, you are referring to read-only memory chip data for old games, then yes. The biggest issue will be the emulator, though.
