    You need to purchase an adapter to connect to HDMI.

    if by emulator you mean something like NES games, the answer is no unless you jailbreak.

    No external controllers yet, by iOS 7 has hooks in it for that kind of support, so I would expect new controllers to start appearing that would work.

    Emulators are only available on the iPhone following a jailbreak...so you won't have it available to you for some time after the release of iOS 7. Be careful with emulator talk around here though, as 99.9999999% of them are illegal, and in the realm of pirating movies/video games.

    The iPhone does not have an HDMi out, but does have a few adaptors (as Karen suggested), and Apple also offers Air Play, which works in conjunction with the Apple TV unit.

    I am not sure about HDMI but I use AirPlay and my AppleTV when I want to "connect" my iPhone to my TV.

    Good choice leaving BlackBerry for the iPhone. I made the switch two years ago and have had zero regrets about switching.

    If you get a lightning to HDMI cable plus HDMI to HDMI it'll be like the same price as getting Apple TV. I'd suggest going the Apple TV route.

    You need to use the specific cable for your model iPhone and model TV for this to work. Also it is not a exact mirror of your iPhone it uses only photo apps and video apps.

    That's not correct, it can mirror the screen exactly if you use the Apple Lightning to HDMI cable.

    Got Apple TV and use Air Drop to connect iPhone 5s to HD TV works great. Screen, games, pictures. Also connect my iPad Air to TV same way. Also stream movies and shows same way. And you tube videos.

    There is a jailbreak tweak available which will let you use a ps3 or ps4 controller on certain ios7 controller supported games available from the App Store. The list of games on the store that are compatible with controllers, is growing daily.
    Search cydia for CONTROLLERS FOR ALL
    Full instructions provided on Cydia.

    Show me an illegal emulator. There's nothing illegal about purchasing and installing an emulator. It's only when you put roms you don't own onto the emulator that the law gets broken.
    I know of not one emulator that comes with roms.

    Apple's app approval process doesn't allow emulators. So the legality doesn't really matter. Yes some have probably snuck past the approval process, but they are quickly pulled as soon as Apple finds out. So the only way to have an emulator (unless you got lucky and downloaded it during the brief period it was available) is to jailbreak.
