I would think it would require a PC Emulator, may the following is what may be needed
PC Engine Emulator for Wii - Nintendo-Scene
I succesfuly installed and started the game using dosbox 1.7 for wii. But I haven't been able to make the gameplay smooth enough to be played. You will need ; 1 USB or sd card with at least 1 gig. ( dosbox must be installed on the same drive as the game drive) ex : I had to reinstall dosbox on my usb drive ( press 1 on wiimote to switch from sd to USB ). A game copy ( 1 folder named game and one named cd). Mount game folder to S: ( mount s USB:/game ). Mount cd to d ( mount d USB:/cd -t cdrom ) load setup. Full install. Load setup. Auto detect sound card. Set video to low quality or the intro will be to choppy) ( don't test video in setup) it will result in a crash ). Load sk. Button mapping default are great. A is left hand B is right. Move with keyboard arrows. Please let me know if you find a dosbox.conf that allow playable gameplay. Feel free to respond if you need more info such as game download site or help with mount command ( of course you'll need a wired usb keyboard to input command) of course you need a game copy to legally download from the site. ( Which I do with original box nonetheless )

Scummvm is for point and click. Stonekeep is a first person dungeon crawler.
