Maybe the question should be "can virtualbox run on an Arm processor?" If there's a version which does, I think the answer would be yes. I don't think there's version of virtualbox which supports the Arm architecture though.

Play Bonny!

No, VirtualBox only runs x86 and x86_64. You'll have to use qemu for Raspbian.
