Seeing what you list, "no", or maybe "partially".

The details:

the cited emulation is only an OS kernel emulation, not a CPU emulation.
e.g. NetBSD/i386 can emulate Linux/i386,
        NetBSD/powerpc can emulate Darwin/ppc. etc.

NetBSD/arm would be able to emulate Linux/arm (if we implemented this),
but can't emulate Linux/i386 or MacOSX/ppc or MacOSX/amd64, and to my
knowledge, there is no MacOSX/arm.

I hope this answers your question.
