I used to run Executor (commercial mac emulator).  The difference
between Executor and Basilisk (and in fact all other Mac emulators) is
that Basilisk requires a Mac ROM image to run, which is illegal to own
unless you also own the Mac ROM it comes from.  Executor is a clean-room
reimplementation of the MacOS and Mac ROM, with no Apple code in it.  I
don't know how that ought to influence anybody's choice of Mac
emulators, but it's a datum to consider in the decision.
