Well, most of the hacks (especially for the golden age roms) are graphical or easily identifiable hacks (like the different mazes in Pac-Man or Elton John glasses on Pac-Man. I would say a large majority of them are identifiable by name alone. In many cases, the original zips had a text file which detailed the hack. I have some of the hacks from when they first came out and have the original zips. Many contain readme files.

A .dat file wouldn't be a bad thing but it would take a lot of work to create one and for most games, unnecessary.
