VirtualPC (KB958559) installs on all WIn7 Editions (except Starter), so you don't need the Ultimate. Here is a guide to install Win98:

To answer your question, yes, Windows XP, 98, etc. will run as 32-bit when using Virtual PC in Win7 x64.

VPC doesn't support 64Bit guests, so it can only run 32Bit guests.
