in short - NO. Both platforms use their own kmod to manage the VT extensions, and the module requires exclusiveness.

Your question lacks detail and thought. The amount of useful information you get out of a site like this will usually scale with the amount of work you put in to describing your problem.

To answer the question you have asked: no. Virtual Machine hosts are exclusive, like operating systems. You can, with some VM systems, run one inside another, but that way madness lies.

The sane approach is this: pick one VM system, run both VM guests inside it. There are tools to convert KVM disk images to VMware and vice versa.
