Well I don't play those games so honestly I don't know how well they are emulated, if at all.  As for the hardware, it shouldn't be terribly hard... the pole is an analog joystick with a spinner on the side to reel things in.  It'd probably be cheaper and easier to just buy an existing cab though, or at least the reel system.  Some of the better ones have force feedback on the line, but I doubt any of those games have the feedback hooked up.

I haven't played them either but watched a couple videos quick. Based on the newness of these games, my guess is they're running on PC-type hardware already. So, probably not currently being emulated.

From a building perspective, just looks like a large screen with a bunch of joysticks around it. At least from what I'm seeing, that wouldn't be too terribly difficult to build! Getting your hands on the software though, I think that could be a challenge.
