Hello! I am new to this community. Been emulating since I want to say 2003 or 2004 (first game ever being Sonic Advance 3 on NO$GBA) and with all the different emulators out there (Dolphin, Cemu, and Citra) I have been wanting to streamline my emulation experience a bit.

Whenever I launch Attract Mode, all 3 of my monitors are pitch black. I can't seem to figure out how to keep everything limited to my middle monitor. Think anyone can help me out here?

This is another question entirely that may not be possible, but I play DS / 3DS games on my left monitor since it is vertical. Say I set up most games to be played on my center monitor, would I be able to target my other monitor for specific emulated games?

there are external applications like ultramon and multimon. It's possible to control application positioning

I don't know what emulator people use for DS/3DS games, but for MAME here's a thread about launching it on specific monitors:
