Generally, no. Glitches and hacks can cause damage to the save file on game, but not usually the system.
Pokegen, Pokedit, and other, less safe hacking devices will not harm your DS.
Some(very few) hacks can harm your DS, but they're major hacks, like a fake game card.

I heard it stopps you from using the menu...
Using an AR Code can do that, or glitching an early generation game without using any outside device. But later Generations have less problems with that, and PokeGen and PokeEdit are safe to use.
