OK, blinking ? mark means it lost your boot sector. Sometimes that can be easy repaired by using the OS X restore function. Press and hold cmd+r during the start up to get in to the recovery mode.

No. The End User License Agreement for 10.6 does not allow for virtualization unless you have purchased the Server version. VMware Fusion (as well as VMware ESXi and VMware Workstation) honors the EULA and does not allow virtualization if the OS X EULA does not allow it.

If your Mac allows you to replace the CPU then you could possibly buy a 64-bit processor and upgrade just that one part. Without changing that there's no practical way to run a 64-bit application on a 32-bit machine. In the short term you'll have to find applications to download that running 32-bit environments or replace/upgrade your Mac.
