I dont know how much you know about WINE or definition of the Emulator...
Its just a program which is emulating WINDOWS so that windows based programs can run under Unix Based Systems. Its not even complete emulator.
Its just implementation of Win32 API on the top of X Window System. Its kind of compatibility layer of windows in Linux.
WINE provides you a library named as "winelib" for the development purposes so that developers can port the windows sources to linux.
