Virtual Windows Servers on Mac OS X

I have a Summer 2011 Mac Mini Server, running Lion. It serves as a common network share for backups, iOS syncs, etc., and media storage for an Apple TV. In coming months, I need to study for some Microsoft SharePoint certifications, and I'd like to do it at home. There are popular solutions I am aware of for desktop virtualization, but is anyone aware of a virtualization solution that will allow me to run multiple instances of Microsoft Windows on the Mac Mini Server to represent two or more servers for SQL Server, Active Directory, etc. Note that it's important for my purposes that these appear to be separate "machines" on the network, not services running on the same machine. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or assistance.

Windows 7 on MacBook Pro won't acknowledge HDMI out

13" MacBook pro running Windows 7 with an HDMI out adapter. Windows doesn't even acknowledge the adapter, though it works fine on Mac OS. Video hardware is the GeForce 9400M (which can't do audio output via HDMI, since it's basically from just before Apple built in that functionality). What to do? I want to hook it up to a TV that doesn't have a VGA or DVI connector at all, so HDMI was about the only option.

A content filter that warns and reports instead of blocking?

The Windows Live Family Safety content filter has a neat optional feature: instead of completely blocking a web page that might be inappropriate, it can display a warning that the user can then click through to visit the site if they really need to, and then a notification is sent to the parent or admin that they clicked through the warning to get to the site. Is there a similar system available for Mac OS? [more inside]
