In response to your core question, fm 9 and 10 run without problems under VMware. I would recommend 64 bit if you want to run with more than minimal RAM.

VPN only tunnels in for the specific OS instance that you establish it for. You can't run it under the Mac OS and expect VMware to share it. Both would require their own VPN connection.

Virtual box works nicely but you have to configure it properly. VMware is up right out of the box, and $40 is a very reasonable cost. You can also migrate your current windows Laptop/desktop to a vmware instance.
