Is it possible to run pinball Roms on Arduino? Answered

I have been interested in pinball machines for quite some time, and was possibly thinking of making my own (when I get some money). 

However, I would sometime like to make a recreation of one of my favorites (Lethal Weapon 3), and I see that the ROM files are posted. I was simply wondering if an Arduino could even read the ROM files, and if not, how they could (if possible) be ported to something that the microcontroller could read.

Thanks in Advance!

Go over to Element 14 and check out the Ben Heck show. He has quite a few episodes of building his own custom pinball machine. HE goes over designing the arduino based main board and designing the playing field. He even has some live cam stuff when he is working on the system.
