Adding Dreamcast to retropie

Hi, I am wanting to add some Dreamcast games to my retropie system but don't seem to have a ROMs file for Dreamcast. How could I go about doing this?

It's for a raspberry pi 4 running raspbian.

I've also downloaded redream emulator for it, is it possible to set it up so you have the Dreamcast logo on retropie (like SNES, mame, master system etc) but have redream emulate it from there rather than having to run it through the desktop?

Retropie offer support for their collection of software, though as yet they are still working on RPi 4B support as far as I can ascertain, see:

Lakka Operating System may be an alternative as fully supports RPi 4B:
