    It all depends on the programmer I guess. If s/he is more skilled in assembly s/he will probably write it in assembly. Most of the emulators I've seen have been written in C though.

    Can Emulators be written in VB , PHP, Delphi or any other language. I mean do you know any other language in which i can program a Emulator. Any language other than C C++ or ASm.

    You could write an emulator in pretty well any language capable of dealing with byte by byte input (most languages). Basically you need documentation on what you are trying to emulate, and a good idea of how to go about writing it.

    Here's some links on the subject:

    As chsh noted you can pretty much write one in any language you like.
    The reason most are written in C/C++ or assembly is execution speed.
    It's kinda silly if you need a 3GHz machine to get a 1MHz CPU emulation to perform.
