Question, what exactly stops this from working on a CoCo 3?

From the Wiki.
There is no hardware reason why the board could not be made to work on the CoCo 3, however this currently will not work due to an incompatibility between the Firmware on the CoCo 3 and the DragonMMC.

How closely does this emulate a floppy? Will it run "protected" disk images?

Are you thinking on any special title?

As far as I know, there are close to none disks with protection mechanisms.

Only one I have found for the Dragon is Colossal Cave Adventure by Compusense.

I also believe some of the later Microdeal titles were released on floppies with some kind of copy protection. Mr Dig comes to mind. I believe those disk used a custom disk format with missing sectors, but my memory might be failing me. I believe I have one or two of these disk titles lying around and can rummage around a bit and check it out.
