Yes exactly, you got it.
When you want to emphasize something you use the same word order as a question, but you don't raise your voice at the end of it to make it sound like a statement.
Here are some examples. Imagine you are a little child staying with your grandma. She has trouble hearing so you have to speak loud and clear. She asks you what you want to do. You haven't had anything to eat all day, so you say "Ich möchte etwas essen". "I would like something to eat". She couldn't hear you, so you say it again "Ich möchte essen". This time she heard that you want something, but she still didn't understand what you want, so she ask "Was möchtest du"? "What do you want"? - You say (in a very polite voice - remember she is your grandma) "Essen möchte ich".
And as quick as lightning she disappears in the kitchen to make you a delicious sandwich.
The stress is on the word "essen" therefore it comes first.
Does that make it clearer?
Here are some more:
