At the moment there is no way to get a NautilusFileInfo from a path/uri,
but this could be added. However NautilusFileInfo objects are not
persistant, so I don't think this will do what you want anyway. The
emblem will only be on the file as long as its kept in memory (i.e.
visible in some window).

However, with the latest version of nautilus you can use 
 gvfs-set-attribute -t stringv <filename> metadata::emblems "emblem"
to set the emblem for a file.
