The name 'Wine' derives from the recursive acronym Wine Is Not an Emulator.
Wine is a wrapper rather than an emulator. It allows you to run Windows applications on another OS, however, the machine's architecture must be the same. Since the PS3 is PowerPC based, and normal PCs are x86 based, Wine won't let you play No$GBA (or any other standard windows app) on PS3. There is an X86 emulator for PS3 that people have used to get Windows 95 running slowly, but it is too slow to run any games on.

If any of the emus have a PowerPC version (typically for older OSX) that could work. However Sony seriously gimped the PS3 in Linux, so you would get better performance out of a 6 year old PC than on a PS3.
