Well, look on the MMO's website, find what source license it is using (likely GNU General Public License). Then, just read through the terms of the agreement. A port to a different language will have exactly the same terms of use as any other modified version, and you just need to follow those rules.

I don't know of any open source license that wouldn't allow that, as long as the result is released under the same license and follows its conditions.
