Help Playing Imports? (Also Importing Memories/Talk)

Today I got this.

Whoo Japanese game for $5 in the US.

So here comes the question. As someone who lives in the US I'm wondering what the easiest/cheapest way to play PS1 imports is, and wondering if anyone else has experience importing games for the PS1.

Secondarily, hey let's talk about importing experiences/memories. I remember going to a store once and finding a copy of Rockman & Forte for $10 but not knowing what it is. Turns out it's rather rare now.

Also unrelated note, the JPN copies of Rockman X 2 & 3 are way cheaper than the US copies.

The first thing that comes to mind for me is that PS1 games have no(Or little to no) copy protection, so you can make a cue/bin disc image on your PC and emulate it.

If you'd rather play it on actual hardware, you may be able to find some kind of converter to alter the cue/bin image to function on a US PS1, then just burn it to a CD. Although, I've never tried this.
