The BIOS in a playstation is a program stored in the ROM of the unit that takes care of low level functions in the system.  Games rely on these functions in order to operate.  The playstation won't run games that rely on BIOS, unless the BIOS "program" is present.

A BIOS Image is an exact copy of that program stored elsewhere (i.e. a disk).  A playstation emulator by itself will act just like a playstation by itself...it won't run games.  The emulator needs BIOS, and it gets it from the BIOS image.

You probably don't have the BIOS image, as emulator authors are not legally allowed to distribute the BIOS image with the emulator, since the BIOS is a copyrighted program.
