Yes. If the apple box you get is an x86 processor you should have no problems. You will need wine 1.4.1 (not the later betas) and all should be well. You simply load up your SC4 game under control of wine in the normal manner including the patches if you are on disk, and then you can just transfer your data files (Plugins, Regions).

wine stands for Windows INterface Engine, and it is not an emulator. It recompiles the Windows calls to native on-the-fly. The program runs at full speed.

Depending on the machine you get you may need to fix up the call for the game with the various well-documented options.
