I need to access a couple of programs which used to run on Power PCs.

Can anyone tell me this, can I install and run either PowerPC or an earlier version of Max OS X (10.4) via Parallels 10 desktop. The Mac itself is running el Capitan, 4GHz & 24GB ram

Install Snow Leopard on a partition or external drive. Boot to it and as it will run Rosetta it will run Power PC apps.

Yeah it's possible. But remember, MAC operating system require a Journal formatted hard drive. You need to partition your hard disk for it.
