I am new to this program and have been doing some research what is stopping wine from running windows app on the power pc and is this something that is going to be overcome in the near future?

What is stopping Wine is the architecture of the PowerPC chip itself. Virtual PC skirted around the issue (before version 7) by enabling "sudo little endian mode" or something like that to get Windows working through the emulation layer.

 

To make a long story short, there has to be some kind of emulation layer in order to make a PPC chip pretend like it's an X86 chip.
