Emulators missing on RetroPie 4.0.2 / Retropie possible on VMware? - HELP!

Hi All, I am a newbie to the Raspberry Pi world so please be patient.
I recently bought a Raspberry Pi 3 and downloaded RetroPie 4.0.2. After installing it I noticed the some emulators were missing from my home screen. I checked a few forums (mostly this one) and found that the emulators do not show up on Emulation Station unless there are ROMS present for that emulator. I then used WinSCP to connect to the Pi and navigated to RetroPie/roms. I found a few folders in there such as NES and SNES but there were a few that are missing, the Atari ST, Atari 5200 and Nintendo DS among others.
Do I need to install those separately? if so can anyone point me in the direction on how to do this?
Also I is the RetroPie compatible with VMware? I like to get practise with the Linux coding side of it but don't always have access to my Pi from work.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks!! I did try to search for it but I guess I was using the wrong terms.
@r34per actually I lied to you sorta. I almost forgot that RetroPie isn't strictly for the raspberry pi. You can also install it on x86 (Ubuntu) which you can install on a virtual machine. There are just some slightly different packages due to the diff platforms.
