More emulators listed here:

The most popular emulators are qemu and spike. There are even a few emulators written in Rust that aren't on the list:

I've messed around with Terminus the most.

How performant it is? Does it feel usable on a mediocre host PC?

Is this work being done by an enthusiast, a company, or something else?

I'm glad it's being done, just curious to know if there's a company with a profit incentive behind it. I don't say that as though it's a bad thing - there are tons of benefits of that. Just trying to understand what's happening.

Regardless, thank you for your efforts! I dream of a day when I buy a high performance RISC-V machine to use as my workstation.

Time for someone to port Oberon again? :)
