Mac OS 9 by Virtualization?

There are some old Mac apps, like the once splendid NISUS 3.06, that I like to use, via Classic, in Mac's OS 10, and so I wonder whether there is a virtualization method in FUSION to use these in the newer Intel Macs?

Nothing in Fusion, no.

Fusion (as all of VMware's products, are virtualization, not emulation, products. Meaning they virtualize n[/i] x86 or x64 machines on top of another physical x86 or x64 machine. An emulator is what you would need - a product that emulates a PowerPC chip on top of the Intel. I don't believe any such technology exists that is as robust as what Classic was... SheepShaver and PearPC seem to be loaded with caveats.

I've had good luck with SheepShaver and Mac OS 9.0.4. Check the first two topics at the following link for latest Intel & PPC versions.
