Or will I have to use the Wii Remote/Nunchucks? Do all Wii games support the Classic Controller Pro as an alternative to using the remote/nunchucks? And what is "virtual console"?

I have limited mobility so I don't think I can use the motion sense controllers, although using a controller is easier for me.

I would greatly appreciate any helpful info. Thanks !!

Most Wii games are not compatible with the Classic Controller.
Here's a full list of ones that do:

Twilight Princess and Corruption (if those are the games you are talking about) don't require much more than wrist movement while playing, so I wouldn't worry too much about the motion control part (I own both).

Virtual console is an online feature for the Wii that allows you to buy games that came out on older video game systems, like the Sega Genesis, NES, and Nintendo 64. The games cost between 500-1200 points ($5-$12) and are saved on to your Wii system. The games can be controlled with a classic controller or Gamecube controller.

Just check the back of the game case. In the upper right corner it will tell you if a game uses the Classic Controller.

All those games have motion control. New Super Mario Bros is just using it as a pointer and giving the controller a little shake to do a spin jump and activate the proppeller suit so it sounds like that might be ok for you still.
