You must have Windows installed in some way in order to run a Windows application. Win apps are compiled for the Windows OS, just as Mac apps are compiled for Apple's OS. That they both use Intel processors is irrelevant. Neither type of app will run under an OS it wasn't compiled for.
You can install Windows by using Apple's Boot Camp setup assistant. This installs Windows onto its own partition and must be booted to separately. You can also use Virtual Machine software such as VMWare or Parallels to install Windows in the VM. Then you can run Windows within OS X and use both at the same time.

You can try CodeWeavers and see if that program will run well or not with that.
edit: seems it's not tested or doesn't work
Your best bet would be likely to run that software in a virtual machine in OS X, it seems to be not graphic or CPU intensive.
