The best answer to that I think would be "maybe" as the ability to install RPM packages depends on the package management system or conversion utilities of the distribution you intend to use, not on the type of virtualization.

Obvoiusly not, QEMU is just an application!

If you mean the OS running inside QEMU, then sure you can (as long as it's an rpm-based distro)!
