Awesome!   Are they all in standard ROM formats?

Obviously I've not checked them all but I would assume each are in the typical ROM format for each platform, don't see why they would not be. 

Though once you UNzip you still may have to UNzip the contents of the folder (unless the emulaotr you are using supports Zipped roms, some do)

Does MESS have an intuitive interface or might there be a good front end? Oddly I've not messed around with it much except briefly long ago, was not the best experience. 

Yes.  Just search for "MESSUI".  I use MESSUI64, but there is also a 32 bit version.

The only tricky part is putting the BIOS files for each system in the right place.  Maybe there is a BIOS collection in that archive that you can just unzip the to the right place.

Cool, yeah I pretty much have BIOS files for most platforms I have collected over the years. I am pretty good with most emulators including those that require BIOS I just have somehow avoided MESS mostly up to now.

I wish there were ROM sets for MAME - I'm still downloading them individually. 

Most people seem to like a fairly modern MAME set so the archives are massive to include the ROMS / Artwork / CHD files etc. So they tend to be distributed through FTP sources or even compiled on DVD sets or even external HDD offered through ROM BURNER distributors like Lazurus or ROMCOLLECTOR etc. 






Otherwise it's Torrent sites like PLeasureDome:
