Something that can fit into something like this:

The whole idea is to create a pseudo-Wii U Gamepad for DS, 3DS, and Wii U emulation. Does a screen that makes this possible exist?

About the smallest you can do is this one:

This screen supports practically anything because it takes an HDMI input and has a USB interface for the touch controls. The smaller screens all use SPI for the touch controls so it would be problematic to set that up for a PC. Even if you were to install an SPI PCI card if that exists you would run into problems with the wiring length for your application.

If you decide to buy this screen from elsewhere make sure it is the one that says it supports various systems. Again, that means it is USB touch instead of SPI.

You might want to look into patenting/copyrighting the idea and design because it sounds really good. Maybe you can reference your post on this thread as a kind of prior art.

edit:
I wanted to add that those kind of screens are resistive screens which are almost always single touch and is certainly single touch in this case. To do on screen touch controls you would want a capacitive multitouch screen like this one:

I might as well add that this screen also seems to respond to the HDMI signal going off by going to sleep and saving power. Touching it brings it back awake when signal is restored. This means you should not have to use the built in backlight switch. It does not support the advanced VESA power saving modes though. The smaller screens power systems are even more primitive and you always have to use the built in backlight switch manually to save power and they tend to use some power even when the backlight is switched off.
