I want to try MOSX Server 1.0 on my iMac G4
The CD doesn't boot, so I've been thinking on installing it on QEMU and cloning the partition to the HDD
Is that possible?

Driver compatibility and differences in internal architecture with supported devices unfortunately means a copy-paste job probably wouldn't work. In order to run it inside QMEU, you have to emulate one of a handful of supported g3 device anyway.

I know
But my idea is to use a program like Gparted to copy the partition
And I have another question
If I put the iMac in target disk mode, and connect it to my PC with a FW card, The system would recognize it? Would it be safe to work?
(If that is possible, I'm thinking to put the iMac as an HDD on QEMU and from there install MOSX)

Target disk mode should work ok, but installing osx server 1.0 onto it probably wouldn't work anyway. It will only run on a handful of g3 models, and won't on a g4. In order to install it, you have to emulate a g3, so every time it boots it will expect a g3. 1.2 supports the emac, so copy-paste has a slightly higher chance of working if it's set up and configured using a g4 emac since they are more similar; at least they share similar processors where the emulated one in qmeu is totally different.

So if there are any emulators of the eMac (Which I think there aren't), it could be possible to, like MrBurgerKing said, "copy-paste the HD"

OS X isn't like MacOS 9/8/7 etc, it's all Unix based, (XNU/Mach/BSD etc), so it doesn't suffer from the same driver / system platform hell. That said the hardware that OS X Server 1.x supports is incredibly small. 1.0 was basically a G3 only release, and more so for the B&W G3, along with some beige models.

1.2/1.2v3 added *SOME* G4 model support, however again actual platform support was quite restrictive.

You can use Qemu to mount a physical disk, and install to that, I was able to install MacOS 9.1 onto a nano SD card, put that into a micro SD, which in turn I put into a micro SD to laptop IDE adapter, and plug all that into a TiBook, and it booted up fine. (The DVD drive in the TiBook is broken, and the ancient 20GB disk was failing).

So yeah, you can *try* to install OS X Server and see if it'll boot on your physical machine, but don't expect anything to work. For what it's worth, I put 10.2 onto my TiBook, which runs snappy enough for me.
