I have a brand new imac.

Is there any way I can use these I used on my old powermac:

PowerMacIntosh 7300/180. --- OS 8.6

old Scanner - Umax - Astra 600S

old Printer - LaserJet 6mp

Is there an adapter? Is it possible?
Is it fairly easy?

We can't tell you anything until you tell us what PowerMac you are using. I looked through your previous posts and found nothing.

Software wise, I believe your PowerMac is running Mac OS 8. This will work with them, but we can't help you with cable adaptors etc. without knowing the above.
