Is testing of any application on an emulator enough or are there any actions that cannot be done using emulators?

You can test all most all of your funcitonality on the emulator for routine needs. You can use the cellular emulator tools to test network, gps, sms, etc. and use hopper to stress test your app. This should get you 90% there, but I would still advise testing on the actual device as well.

You can install apps on the emulator? Why can not I open the page in IE Marketplace within the emulator?
Can I test the video camera through the camera of the host computer? I would like to test pattern recognition in images coming from the camera.

You must be talking about the Windows Phone 7 emulator. If that's the case, you're in the wrong forum.
Please post Windows Phone 7 related question inthese forums: http://forums.create.msdn.com/forums/
Concerning the camera access: neither the old Windows Mobile 6.x nor the Windows Phone 7 emulator do support this. You'll need a real device to test this.

Use of mobile emulators and simulators is essential for developing and testing a quality application. Such technology enables developers to verify certain functionality that is not specific to any device, carrier or operating system. They are also very useful in terms of usability, and especially design, including data input, screen size, button use, etc. – all from the convenience of their own laptop.
Although many mobile app companies rely on these tools to identify bugs at an early stage in development , they often fail to catch bugs at later stages. As we’ve seen, these type of bugs are always the most expensive to correct.
