No, don't believe you can.
You can, however, download PSX emulators for the PC to play Playstation games on your PC (if the PC is fast enough).

The PSX uses a completly different chip (MIPS I think) while your PC probably uses an Intel x86 (or PowerPC if you have a mac).

The game would need to be ported to the PSX processor, which would require the source code (owned by the company that made the game) and a lot of hacking by the company.

Even if it was ported/emulated to the PSX, the PSX is slow compared to most recent computers and has a _very_ limited amount of memory (compare Quake 2 PC vs PSX).
