    Yes, you can. I watched the video guide to installing the snes emulator, and within 10 minutes had Mario Kart running on the PB. No previous use of developer mode, sideloading or anything.

    Now looking for more stuff to sideload.

    It is possible and legal as long as you are the copyright owner of the apps that you want to load or you have the express consent of the author. Developers generally give their express consent by submitting their products to App World for approval. In this case, of course, there is no need to sideload the software because App World takes care of the monetary transaction and installs the software OTA. If you plan on avoiding the monetary transaction by sourcing the software elsewhere, you would be breaking the law.

    no man the main issue i am facing is that i don't have access to wifi. I use internet in my playbook using my bluetooth tethering, and appworld doesn't work with bluetooth internet. It requires wifi.

    Careful; you can sideload with OS 1.X, but you won't be able to run Android Apps until you get OS 2.X because OS 2.X includes the Android Player (simulator).

    I'm did not mean to suggest that you had ulterior motives. The fact remains that the PlayBook is advertised as a wireless device. You need WiFi in order to update the OS and you need WIFI to use App World (and a few other services).

    You could not have activated your device without access to WIFI and you should consider using the same hotspot (or any other public hotspot) to use App World. The bridge or a tethered connection will suffice for the vast majority of apps after they are installed.
