    one is emu.cr other is http://www.emutopia.com/index.php/downloads-emulators
    every emulator have source of sourceforge or github its important to know name
    im dont know what skills you have but for write emulator you must have great math skills also know convert hex to binary and to octal number systems
    at least one programming language also be good ad reverse engeering
    know how works gpu,cpu,memory of pc and simulated hadware example how work nes console
    there you go in emulation scene to write emulators
    other way is beta testing you will know the same but report about errors in code
    have github and sourceforge acount is important fix of code is added of course you must know at least GIT and SVN other way to make path is CVS
    most popular is C++.C#(c sharp),C most of emulators are write in those because of porting (port mean rewrite code for run on every platform even console)
    also those are very easy to fixed and learn a C language is used in microcontrolers Atmel Company
    ffmpeg codec is writen in C also nes emulator fakenes compile with Visual Studio or GCC is not important its the same language but code can have few differences
    also know doxygen its documentation for source

    Well, My first "emulator" was the Chip8. It's not a real system, It's an interpreted language, it's very simple and a nice project to start with.
    My current project is now a Gameboy emulator called gbx (https://github.com/dhustkoder/gbx).
    It already runs many games, I just didn't implemented the sound chip yet.
    My advice is: Choose one Chip8/Gameboy/NES, and then search for documentation on the internet.
    There are tons of good resource out there.
    If you are proficient with some programming language and have basic understanding of how CPU and memory works and interacts, then you should be ready to start.
