Question: is it possible to do a back up of all data saved on my
computer without opening it?

Answer NO.

What you need to do is remove the HDD fit it to a USB Caddy and copy your data directly off the drive to some other backup device.

Ideally you should already have a recent backup so you may not actually loose any or much data depending on how much work has been done since your last backup.

If you haven't a valid working Backup this is a Wake Up Call to you as NB's are the most stolen item on the face of the planet and the moment that it gets stolen you have permanently lost all your Data Forever with no hope of recovery.

ASUS has no requirement to backup your data unless you are willing to pay for the privilege as that isn't included in their Guarantee in any way shape or form. Even then they have correctly advised you of what to do ASUS has asked me to back up data in any PC workshop,

This is the correct thing to do if you are silly enough not to regularly Backup all your DATA.

Now for your other questions

Can I access my data connecting the currently dysfunctional
ASUS notebook and eMac to migrate my data to e Mac?

Unlikely if the NB is not working currently. You need direct access to the HDD which has all the data saved on it so you can recover your data.
