    Is there such a thing as an emulator that will allow the computer to run a disk image as a CD? Or something along those lines?

    That's what a Disc Image is. If you create a Disc Image of the CD the computer will think that the CD is available. Some games have stuff that make this not work, but in general, that is what is going on.

    Yes, but sometimes it will recognise that there us actually no disk in the drive, and not allow you to use it.
