1-you should be able to update your hbc without any problems
2-just install over the old one, you don't need the zelda game to install hbc anymore
3-you are best off updating to 4.1, that guide should work ok for you.
4-there is a guide on changing your firmware on this site, have a search for it
Thank you for the fast reply!
So I went on and installed the HBC v1.0.6 and did backup of the NAND (It went smoothly). So the next step is to update the firmware to 4.1 or 4.2. I want to make absolutely certain about what I should do before actually messing with the firmware for fear of bricking. I've found a step by step tutorial (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901&hl=) to update the firmware to 4.2 but still not certain whether to follow that guide or update to 4.1, as I'm not sure if I can change the language after updating to either 4.1j or 4.2j?. I've read the guide and all the comments from here as well (http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...stem-menu.html). But it is too outdated and doesn't provide anything useful. So I'm still have trouble deciding what I should do now
Also when updating to 4.1j is the "IOS60-patched.wad" (included in one of the guide) compatible with the japanese firmware?
Decided to put SignCheck output of my wii:
SignCheck 0.3b aka loveSexWii build report
Wii region Japan
IOS number "Trucha bug" "Flash access" "Boot2 access" "Usb2.0 IOS tree"
IOS250 (ver 65535) Enabled Disabled Disabled Enabled
IOS249 (ver 17) Enabled Disabled Disabled Enabled
IOS37 (ver 2070) Disabled Disabled Disabled Disabled
IOS36 (ver 1042) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS35 (ver 1040) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS34 (ver 1039) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS33 (ver 1040) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS31 (ver 2576) Disabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS30 (ver 2576) Disabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS28 (ver 1288) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS22 (ver 772) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS21 (ver 514) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS20 (ver 12) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS17 (ver 512) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS16 (ver 257) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS15 (ver 257) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS14 (ver 257) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS13 (ver 10) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
IOS12 (ver 6) Enabled Enabled Disabled Disabled
Also how can I check/know if there are any stubbed IOSes? What does Trucha bug: Enabled and Disabled mean?
If you can please answer the above questions a little more in details I will really really appreciate it.

I've no experience of changing a wiis region so i can't really help you on that one...there is a lot of info/guides on it dotted around the net so for that, google is your friend...as for the update i would advise staying well clear of 4.2, it contains nothing useful/needed whatsoever, go for the 4.1 update, the patched ios 60 is compatible with jap wiis and must be installed before using the updater else brick!
