I have some questions about emulation and virtualization that I need cleared up. 

1. Is emulation legal? . If so, where do you get emulators? I'm always wary about downloading stuff from the internet and getting viruses, malware, etc. 
2. Is there an android emulator that will run on a windows 10 machine? I'm looking to play a game that will run on android devices on my computer.
3. Will Mac OS High Sierra run on virtual box inside a Windows 10 computer? I was told that Mac stuff will only run on Mac computers, but I was also told it is possible. Which?
4. If Mac OS High Sierra will only run on Mac systems, then is the Mini Mac the cheapest way to start using it? I only want to just do basic stuff like learn how to navigate around a Mac and familiarize myself with it.
5.  If i want to run other OS's on virtual box (such as Mac or Windows), do I still need to buy the other OS? If so, are any student versions available?

1. Yes, it is completly legal. VirtualBox is free, VMWare Player is free too

2. Of course, Bluestacks, or AndroidX86

3. It will run, but you will need to download a ISO version (Yosemite: http://getintopc.com/softwares/operating-systems/niresh-mac-osx-yosemite-10-10-0-dvd-iso-free-download/)

4. You can buy an old one for less than 100 €, if you want Sierra

5. Well, answer is no and yes. Without downloading special, pre-activated versions or cracks, then you must buy it. But it will definetly not be a problem for you
