then I will burn the bios.bin into the flash ROM chip 49LF004, the original BIOS system will be removed ?
disk.img into Compact flash...

Am I right in this point ?

Is the coreboot working fine ? or not yet ?
Can I write it to Compact flash for real boot ?
How ? Which file should I burn ? the bios.bin?

Yep, Coreboot is working fine and you're squarely in kernel mode at this point. Make sure you have all the requisite serial driver support compiled statically into your kernel (Device Drivers --> Character Devices --> Serial Drivers) so you can see the kernel messages.

Copy your system image to your storage media (compact flash?) as you normally would and try it out with the vendor BIOS first to verify that the system image + kernel work fine on real hardware. If you're comfortable with the QEMU trial results, and you have a sane way of recovering the vendor BIOS, use flashrom to burn the new Coreboot image to the firmware ROM.
