    Don't get your first question.
    Once you set it up, yes, it will act just like Windows would normally.

    Dual-booting Vista isn't too bad, but you'd need a beast of a machine to be able to virtualize it properly, and I don't really see any need to upgrade at the moment. Well, downgrade really. I just upgraded from Vista to XP and am really enjoying the performance improvements.

    That would be a downgrade and Windows won't let you do that :( You can always install both Windows on two different partitions.
