Is it ok to put a steam and emulator together in one system?

Many emulators don't even need to be installed to work, they can be used as a "portable" version, meaning it comes in a .zip (or some other archive) and you just extract the files into a folder.
As such, even assuming Steam's VAC'd scan you PC for running softwares, it wouldn't detect something that isn't installed in the first place... Unless it's currently running at the same time.

But it's highly unlikely that anything would happen in the first place, emulators are not "cheating softwares".

I was thinking I have steam on my windows gaming pc, but will installing a emulator into the system interfere with the system? 

I never installed an emulator before, so not too confident. 

I plan to play some oldies like "golden axe" and "turtles thru time" I'm planning to invite some of my colleagues to my house for a party. Please advice thanks.

the only way it could interfere in any way is when you have both running at the same time ._.

(the least would be both fighting for system resources. the worst would be VAC finding an issue with your emulator in the background)

What... No, the emulator is just another program
