Yeah, but its a lot of work...
1) downlaod and install VMware player
2) install simulator
3) set it up w/ dev mode
4) teach / show user how to load your applicaiton onto the simulator.
Or you could just publish a trial version of your app for use on playbook and screenshots / a video walkthrough of the app being run on the simulator for those w/o a playbook to try it on.

It is possible to decompile a SWF file, and therefore a BAR file.
It's difficult, because the code will essentially be obsfucated - but there are tools to do it and it can be done.

The simulator is a development tool. Unless you intend for your app to be reviewed by other developers because you need some help or want to share the code, etc. I personally see no point.
What exactly are you trying to accomplish by 'making public tests on PC for each user' ?

If you need another user to review/test your app and you haven't used any Playbook-specific APIs, you could upload the SWF and required files to some webspace and send the link. Even if you have used Playbook-specific APIs, you can always add a "webCompile" flag and set it to true when you are compiling for the web, then avoid using those APIs conditionally.
For example, the setting "stage.nativeWindow.visible = true" is not valid when running the SWF in a browser, so I've added a condition to make it "if (webCompile == false) stage.nativeWindow.visible = true". Thus, I can easily build a Playbook version and an embedded web version of my app.

Wouldn't it be easier to make the swf available through a webpage? But just like berryawesome I don't see much advantage in doing so.
