You can as your not entering another country. For example, on your way back you will have to recheck your bags in Melbourne.

You can interline QF to EK if they are a single or seperate PNR.
I am pretty sure the agreement with Qantas and Emirates states the PNR has to be the same for all the flights to allow through check in.
This is this is the link to the QF interlining page QF to EK or EK to QF on seperate PNRs was been in place since the partnership started. I asked QF in ADL a couple of weeks ago about this scenario as I am doing the same thing in 2 weeks, the lounge staff indicated it maybe up to EK depending on if they want to check your vac certificate's and do the check in at MEL.
Prior to Covid I have through checked QF to EK on seperate PNRs from ADL many times.
