To be able to emulate something from scratch you need to know how to program on it. So read up on 80x86 assembly and whatever system you are trying to emulate.

You can also learn about emulation by downloading other peoples emulators and seeing how they do things.

Yep. Also, for X86, you'll want to download Intel's manuals from their web site. There's a 3-volume series on the Intel architecture including a book dedicated to the instruction set and its encoding. It used to be possible to order nicely-bound hardcopy editions for free but I'm not sure if that's still the case.

I'd suggest trying to write a disassembler first. The instruction decoding is the biggest headache with an X86 system.
