> 1. Is MAME the backend for the arcade system, regardless of the front end?

Yes, MAME is always what runs the arcade games. On the Pi it's a version of MAME that's old enough to get a driver's license, and on a PC you can generally run current.

LaunchBox and GameEx are two popular choices for that kind of setup.

That processor is going to be marginal for MAME and it won't run Dolphin (the Gamecube backend) well at all since it's single-core.
