Xbox 360 to iMac 27 inch.

Is there a way to use my Xbox 360 on my iMac? If so, what cables do I need?

There's no way to do that, unfortunately. Maybe on Apple Display but it hasn't got hdmi or you're gonna convert hdmi to dp which is unnecessary to work on it.

There is an adapter that was sold for the 27" iMac. It wasn't cheap and it only supports 720p.

you can use thunderbolt as mini display port. that's not the point. maybe there is a application for that.
