Is there a joystick I can get for wii that is compatable with Mame and gxgeo as well as Cps emulators? If not is there one for game cube or what solutions do I have?

The sticks plug into the Wiimotes and are read by the system as if they're classic controllers. All the emulators I've come across support classic controllers. So, yes.

There's the Wii Hori stick with crappy Hori joystick/buttons that are a pain to swap:

and there's the Tatsunoko vs. Capcom stick with a Sanwa JLF joystick and buttons that are much easier to swap should you wish to:

I have both and I much prefer the TvC stick.
Also, pretty much all emulators support gamecube controllers so that's a route you could go down as well.

I have 3 of the Hori sticks and only ran into an issue with FCEultra always reading it as going left. Retroarch however fixed that.

I will say if you need a stick, and you are only going to use it on the Wii/Wiiu, go for the Madcatz Wiiu Tekken Tag 2 stick. It goes on sale for $60ish and is all Sanwa parts. Sadly it does not play well with the CC to USB adapter.

^This is what I use alongside my Wii Emulators. I have a pair of them so friends can join me in enjoying TMNT Arcade, Metal Slug, Street Fighter, etc. They work great and are very comfortable to use since they plug in to the wireless wiimotes.
