It won't run on the mentioned Arduino of course since it's written for the 6510 CPU and peripherals in a C-64 or C-128.

There's no real dynamic program loading possible (from connected storage or whatever) since it can't execute instructions from RAM. Unless you take the indirection of a script/bytecode interpreter or outright emulation of a different CPU (there's an AVR based CP/M project out there that emulates a 8080 with external DRAM).
