no idea where to get the DS port from though, since it's not an official port

At http://scummvm.drunkencoders.com/ you can find the (still) unofficial DS port of ScummVM.
For the old AGI Sierra games I can also recommend NAGI , another fine emulator for AGI games like Sarien.

Thank you.

So there IS gonna be an official DS port? Does the DS use full resolution of the games? (does the screen have enough pixels for the entire game?)
which is better - the PSP port or the DS (considering you can use the stylus)?

Whilst I haven't seen the DS port, it's my understanding it shows a subsection of a given screen at any one time, focused around the player. There's been some talk on the dev mailing list of adding the equivalent of a 'setFocusRect' method to the underlying engine which game engines could call whenever, for example, a character has to speak. That way, the underlying engine (in the case of the DS and other small screen devices) could focus the screen section on the character as they speak, and then return to focusing on the player.
