Thanks for the Reply!
I need to know the anatomy of a Emulator and possibly a Virtual M. so I know what is involved.
Most of the definitions of them state that they create a simulated hardware which they physically can't because your host O.S in not gong to execute foreign code on it. This definition is a really bad analogy and is completely misleading. The analogy is that I approach a incompatible host and insert a guest application(disk) and the host configures it's self to execute the guest application raw which it Obviously won't. It is a hardware only analogy which is totally inaccurate.
It would be useful if I knew that path and steps that the guest code went through to reach the hardware.

For something that detailed, I'd suggest contacting the development teams for those programs.
Maybe get in touch with either the Wine or VirtualBox dev teams, see what you can learn.
