Uh, why?

And what would stop you from taking the CP/M BIOS and turning it into a
standalone application that passes its system calls to Mac OS, and using
files as disk images?
You might have some fun with supervisor instructions, but you can trap
and emulate, it might just work.

You wouldn't be running it natively, but that doesn't have to be a
requirement.
