Using a USB keyboard on the computer emulators

Until now I have only played arcade games and ones etc, but have a hankering after playing some old school Atari 800, Spectrum and C64 games, may of which, such as adventure games, use keyboard input rather than joystick.
I have read much in the docs about mapping joysticks etc but I seem to have hit a brick wall regarding keyboards - basically, I want it to be just like using them years ago, being able to type commands in naturally etc.
Is this something that I should be able to do - I am happy for someone just to point out if it is at least that way I know I am not wasting my time trying to research and implement something that is impossible!
The ideal scenario would be to choose a game such as a The Hobbit on the Spectrum and just sit at the keyboard typing my commands in as if I was using an original Spectrum...
