If he's just looking for basic applications, then VMWare will work for him. Don't expect to play games, though. You'll need a bootcamped Windows install for that. (VMWare does have limited 3d support, but in my experiences it's far too choppy to do anything with.)

I do not know of emulators but I do know of compatibility layers such as Crossover.

Awesome software. I run this on my MacBook, and can run Win XP, basically any Linux flavor, and Vista Ultimate.
