Long story short, install your virtual machine player (VMware Fusion is on Mac, as well as VirtualBox), then install a Windows workstation using the instructions either program gives you.

Unfortunately, you will need either a digital copy (iso) or a physical copy of Windows to actually create the virtual workstation.

That's a question beyond my abilities. Hah, I'm a Sys Admin, but I hardly ever deal with vms.
