complicated

Well you see, it is a lot more complicated than it seems. You can try to find it in debian (just look up your wanted file and debian in Google) , wheezy or Jessie will work, download and extract the armel package, and look at the contents. Paste your file in the place your programs other libs are, don't mntroot rw and put it in the Kindles libs. Or set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to where the new file is. If you can't find it online, look at my tutorial you can copy the file from either the virtual machine or debian on the kindle.

However, it is probable that you will receive even more errors of missing libs. It only shows one error at a time so there is probably a long list. Also new libs you paste in could have their own missing files. Look at the dependencies on a files debian package page.
Good luck. This was my struggle too.
Also gambette-k on this forum is great for Gameboy emulator.

No, it only needs the newer libpng - all other dependencies are already might.

Debian list the arch as armel.
The *.deb packages are just an ar archive, open, remove binary, put on Kindle where the dynamic loader can find them (for instance, in the same place as the older libpng*something is stored).
Note:
ELF format files have internal versioning (of each and every symbol) the loader will make the right choices even with them sitting next to each other on the file system.

Don't forget to update the dynamic loader's cache after adding a library.

Don't let the Kindle install an Amazon update image or you will be doing all of the above again.
