*Some* non-cracked versions can use ADF, if they simply ask for some word in the manual.
Else you can use IPF (and maybe also RAW images, which can be produced with just an A1200).

However some games will work with neither because they need to be HD installed. In this case you have to provide a hard disk file (HDF).
Then perhaps it may be a better idea to only do HD installs (like with the use of Whdload). This way the game is patched to work ok and thus a single Amiga config can play many, if not all, games (else you'll also have config problems !).

This is not really possible, and, worse, a single kickstart rom will not be enough. Some games will refuse to work on >1.3 systems, while others (mostly AGA games) will need 3.x...
