Mednafen server works well for Sonic 2 over LAN on regular laptops with keyboard input. I only tried the GBA Sonics briefly, but they look like great new games (rather than just ports) yet still with proper crisp 2D graphics, but not sure how network would work as presumably it's made for one input controller only? (not sure if any emulators can emulate multi-console networking?)

Does Sonic Mania (which you described as "the best") have any networked multiplayer? I'm wondering how it'd run in Linux on Wine, and whether it'd be necessary to sandbox it to prevent it from doing any unnecessary network requests?

That's part of the appeal of the earlier Sonic games: that they can't phone home (and hence not any possibility of adding loot box functionality or similar)
