Can Unify Allow Windows-Only VSTs to Run on Intel Mac?

I did a brief search and didn't see a discussion on this.  I am wondering if Unify can be used to run a VST that is advertised as "Windows only" on an Intel Mac.  This would be moving from Intel to Intel (same ISAs?) so maybe it is possible?  I already own Unify, and have been considering a few new unrelated VST purchases, but those VSTs are billed as Windows only.  Thanks in advance for any insights.

Unify itself doesn't do this, but I've worked on this in the past; see https://netvst.org/wiki/doku.php and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhyrXPPkFEE

The NetVST tools are old, and badly in need up updating, but if your MacOS version is older than 10.15 Catalina they may still work. However, "NetVSTHost for Mac" is only for 32-bit Windows plug-ins.

Eventually I hope to get back to working on this, but Unify itself is keeping me super-busy for now.
