Based the the specs I found for the TG16, it has 8 KB of RAM. I also found notes in the documentation of many opcodes that there is data stored in several "flags and switches" are these stored in RAM or in a designated register?

You are probably referring to the status register. This is a hardware register in the CPU, and is not stored in RAM.

Generally speaking, the HuC6280 is similar to a 6502-family CPU. You may want to acquaint yourself better with those parts; familiarity with them will make the HuC6280 easier to understand.

    The 6502 was an extremely popular processor in its time. There were many books written about working with it. Read one. – duskwuff Dec 6 at 18:08

    @JackKasbrack It's a serious recommendation. Stack Exchange Q&A isn't a good medium to explain something this broad. A book is. – duskwuff Dec 7 at 20:42
