It should be possible, at least with simple things such as infinite lives/time/score etc., LCD handhelds are usually nothing more than 8-bit systems with primitive graphics.

Other cheats such as invincibility (e.g. ignoring collision/hitboxes) would most likely have to be done as ROM cheats, which Cheat Engine etc. is useless for that type of thing (since of course read-only memory never changes by itself), you would need to disassemble the game code and know exactly what to look for.
