Good point! Gamepad navigation in Project64 would be useful and doesn't seem to be available. In the mean time, launching a game through Project64 can be done by any outside program and here there are some options.

I use Steam (Big Picture Mode) combined with Ice (Google 'ice for steam') to have one hub for gaming. After configuration, running Ice will integrate ROMs and emulators such as Project64 into Steam automatically. Setting Steam to launch at startup in Big Picture mode means full controller support. Steam's a relatively big application so I don't know if your PJ64 machine can support it. But the good thing is that many of its features, such as browsing the internet, are accessible through a gamepad.

Box Art can be taken from consolegrid.com, a site based on user generated content that collects custom game images for a selection of consoles. These can range from original box covers to fan art. Ice automatically searches this site for the top ranked image of your game and sets it as a custom image within Steam's grid view (I had to reduce game titles such as 'Mario Kart 64 [EU]' -> 'Mario Kart 64' for it to work).
