Cider or Wine add the necessary windows library functions to allow for software to run on a linux / unix host. Unfortunately, the software is still compiled for an x86 / x86_64 architecture computer - not a powerpc computer.
You would need a cpu emulator like VirtualPC or QEMU to run windows + windows software on a PPC mac.

i have virtual pc for mac and it came with windows xp and on my mini g4 1.42 ,its emulating a equivalent of a pentium 3 processor with 600mhz and 256mb ram and it works fine ,ok you wont play games on it
but i have to say for the price it costs you nearly get a used pc with a pentium 4 processor , so as i always say you want windows then buy a pc
