Well are you trying to install the homebrew channel on your wii, or have already got it and you want to downgrade?

Before you can code you need an sd card or usb device to plug in the back of your wii. Do you have one?

As far as cheats are concerned, the only "GameShark" like device for the Wii is the USB Gecko, although it has been discontinued.  You would need one of those if you were looking to create codes for Wii games.  However, if you are only looking to run already existing cheat codes on Wii games, all that you would basically need is an SD card, and a homebrew program called GeckoOS.  On the 4.2 System Menu, GeckoOS can (possibly) be run through any of the following...

Bannerbomb - GeckoOS may not work properly through this.
Smash Stack
Indiana Pwns

Homebrew Channel - Probably the most convenient way to run homebrew applications like GeckoOS.  However, it requires that you install unofficial software onto your Wii console, and also requires either Bannerbomb, Smash Stack, or Indiana Pwns to install on the 4.2 System Menu.

All of the software that I have listed on this post is legally available for free.  The only things that you may possibly need to buy is an SD card, and a USB Gecko if you want to create your own codes.

The 4.2 System Menu would delete all older versions of the Homebrew Channel when a user updated their Wii console.  These older versions used the Title ID known as "HAXX."  The newest version uses the Title ID "JODI," which the 4.2 System Menu does not look for.  Anyway, when installing things like the Homebrew Channel, you would probably want to keep things like that in mind, and view sites like this one when/if newer System Menus are released.  You can read more about the 4.2 System Menu at Nintendo's site as well...

| Nintendo - Customer Service | Wii - Wii System Menu and Feature Updates

It is not recommended to try and downgrade from 4.2.  It is possible, but if done incorrectly, can cause your Wii console to become bricked.  With a patched/downgraded IOS36, it should be possible to use all of the features of GeckoOS.  It should also be possible to get cheats working, while still remaining on the 4.2 System Menu.

What's a SD card? Where do I get one? Can I download anything from the internet directly to my Wii? I'm on my Wii as my only source of internet access right now since my computer's busted.... I click download on things and get an error message saying file format not supported. What does it mean? Happens each time I try to download anything to my Wii...

An SD card is basically just a device that be used as storage for files.  SD cards can be used on the Wii, and are also commonly used on things like digital cameras and computers.  The same SD card can be used on different types of hardware.  For example, I use the same SD card on my computer, and on my Wii.  You can read more about SD cards here...

This is the SD card that I personally use...

You can download homebrew programs directly from the Wii, without a computer, by using a homebrew application called the Homebrew Browser.  I believe that this program downloads straight to your SD card, although it may support a USB device as well.

Unfortunately, however, you need a method of running homebrew in order to run the Homebrew Browser, such as one of the methods that I mentioned in my previous post in this thread.  The Internet Channel cannot download these types of files, so yes, you will need a computer at least one time in order to set your Wii up for homebrew use.

Also, according to Nintendo, you cannot download or upload files through the Internet Channel...

Downloading and uploading files or other items are not supported by the Internet Channel, as well as installing plugins or executable files. Please note that when an official update is available for the Wii console, you will be notified by an on-screen message the next time you connect online.
