There's a lot of information on web that to enable Hyper-V backup in Windows Backup Tool you need to do changes in registry before it will allow you to. But are those settings applicable only to Windows 2008 with Hyper-V or does Windows 2008 R2 too requires the changes? Also does Windows Backup support snapshots and everything else related to Hyper-V backup?

Yes, if you want to use VSS-aware applications, and no it does not support snapshots!
