Hello!

vmware does not do CPU emulation, it does only run on x86 processors. So this would not be your solution.

The only solution I know is bochs which emulates a complete PC. You can install windows using bochs. But don't expect high emulation speed. Bochs is in portage so just do 'emerge bochs'.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Gentoo on PPC.

vmware is a binary package that will only run on x86/amd64

qemu is probably the best solution on ppc for x86 emulation.
