Win8 pro will have the Virtual machine option along with Win8 enterprise, Win8 Enterprise will not be available to retail though as it is for companies / corporations with volume license agreements.

You cant upgrade from win8 to win7 pro Microsoft will class that as a downgrade.

Microsoft will be allowing manufacturers of pc's to offer a downgrade from win8 to win7 with new pc's and laptops very similar to what was offered when Vista first became available.

Have you actually tried Win8 yet? if not i seriously suggest that you download the 90 trial of Win8 from Microsoft and either run it as virtual machine in Win7 or do a dual boot to try it. Please not that the 90 trial version Microsoft has made available is actually Win8 enterprise that won't be available to retail (enterprise ahs a few things in it that aren't available in other versions. You also can not convert the trail to a full version by purchasing a product key. It will stop running after 90 days.

A few links worth looking at.
