i am a big fan of qemu-kvm, i've several instances running on servers running ubuntu linux. I now wonder if it's anyhow possible to use a virtual server image on an Mac OS X machine. Either by running qemu on OSX or by running any other virtual machine? Is there any possibility?

YOu should be able to use qemu but it will be SLOW without without either k-qemu or kvm (neither of which is available in OS X to my knowledge). What you can do is take a qemu image and convert it to use in ESX/VBox.
