Luigi's Mansion is a low level GameCube game, so can the 3DS play Super Mario Sunshine? Or Pikmin?

I'm going to say yes. The new 3DS can handle Xenoblade Chronicles.

Considering Tales of the Abyss and Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater were ps2 games and were on 3ds, yes 3ds can handle gamecube games. Donkey Kong Country Returns was a wii game and looked and played great on 3ds.

The games have to be ported (completely reworked/remade and such) to be playable on the 3DS

I'm pretty sure that you're right. The questions should be more like "Can the 3DS play gamecube quality games?". I don't think that it can emulate gamecube games.

I'm going to say yes. The new 3DS can barely handle Xenoblade Chronicles.

Just saying.
You're not funny and nobody likes you.

Yeah I'll take that back. The graphics were obviously toned down on the 3DS, so it probably can't handle wii games.

Captain Toad treasure Tracker was a Wii U game
and it's getting ported to Switch and 3DS.

Yoshi's Wooley World was a Wii U game and it got ported to 3DS.
