Wondering if I can set the game to start the player as Mario on a new game, instead of Yoshi?

Not without ASM.

Well, unless I can be guided in the right direction or be given some advice, I suppose I'd have to wait for someone else kind enough to do it.

To change the starting character:
1. Open the ROM in a hex editor and go to offset 0x13DDC (for EUR ROM)
2. Change the "03" to the character of your choice (00: Mario, 01: Luigi, 02: Wario, 03: Yoshi)

Makes the intro cutscene a little glitchy, but you're probably going to want to apply the Skip Intro patch anyway if you're changing starting characters.

I can't find that address in any hex editor I use

I found it, I think I had to hit ctrl+g instead of f

For anyone in the future that finds this thread, don't do what I did and load a previously created save - you'll still start as Yoshi. This only applies to the beginning of the game. To get to 0x13DDC, using HxD Hex Editor or similar, use, as SolarZ said, Ctrl+G (for HxD) and input 13DDC. Ctrl+F will search for the string instead of the address.

Also, like above, make sure the 'Skip Intro' patch is applied (More > Additional Patches in the SM64DSe home screen).
