Sorry for not reading the manual but in short. Is is possible to use snapshot technique in OpenMSX?
What i mean by this, would it be possible to save a current state of the machine and revert back to it? And is it possible to talk with openMSX using a API or so? Using Windows platform.

Yes on both questions.
Now go read the manual on how to use savestates: https://openmsx.org/manual/user.html#savestate

And if you use catapult you will know that an external program can talk to the running openMSX process, so go read the code of catapult :)

Before/instead of reading the catapult source code, you may first want to read the Controlling openMSX from External Applications manual.
