https://youtu.be/8D7O35hhOg8 It is possible but if you want to install it on your HD... be careful. I tried it and it was pretty useless, in addition it given me some hardware issues... if you have a decent hardware... try it in a virtual machine!

There is PC version called android x86. You can download the ISO for free, but like others said it's not that useful. I did this along with other Linux distros from USB live boot. I had hardware issues. I did recently try Bluestacks (mentioned by others) on Windows 10 which emulates android. I tried a couple games and it seems to work pretty good.

You can definitely get emulators for instance the one built into android studio. However as for running on a PC I don't know. It is based on Linux and Chrome OS Is built on it or very similar so maybe.
