e.g. Games like NBA Live 97, FIFA Soccer 95, or any other games?

You'll need a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive emulator, like Kega Fusion (which I recommend) to run Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games in the PC. As for the game itself, you'll need to acquire a copy of its ROM that the emulator will then run. Methods of acquiring a ROM include ripping the game's content from the cartridge via specialized hardware, or obtaining a copy of the ROM from an Internet source. These methods vary by area in legality, so consult a lawyer before proceeding.
If you don't already have the games and hardware, you could also purchase the games for the PC. Sega itself sells a 'Collection' pack for the PC, which allows you to play a lot of the most popular* Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games on the PC (also through an emulator):
It should be noted that Steve Snake, developer of Kega Fusion, was also the developer of the emulator used in Sega's collection packs.
* It doesn't include Mortal Kombat 3 or Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, though. =(
