How about setting up Mac OS 9.22 using a Virtual box? No longer supported but it could live on?

Use search function, discussed several times. OS9 is another world than Intel.

VB only runs on x64 and x86 architectures. Since Mac OS 9 only runs on PowerPC CPU's, which is a different architecture, it won't work. It's like asking to support VB for your ARM based device (mobile phone, console, etc.).
