I can easily see this rumor as being false, but not because of technical limitations.
Yes, I've heard of emulators. Amateurs have been able to make emulators that barely run PS2-era games. I would imagine that in order to make every Xbox 360 game playable (that is, on par with an Xbox 360's native performance) on any PC would take a considerable amount of time. I'm not too concerned about MS migrating it's own software to other softwares so much as game engines, developed specifically for the hardware of the 360 not being able to be migrated. Not every Xbox game plays on Xbox 360, either.
Skepticism aside, I really, really would like to see this happen. I'd love to play Forza 2 or 3 on the PC.
