AIX 6.1 - no problem.
If you mean i5/OS 5.3 when writing " iO.S 5.3." - no problem either.
But what is "PowerVM ware "?

nothing ?  no POWERVM  ( power vitualization manager ) ?
IBM has a VMWare website but I was trying to see if there was such a specific O.S. for Power5+ IBM servers.

There is POWERVM, but that is not an OS in a usual sense. Power Virtualization itself is done on the Hypervisor platform, which is already contained in the firmware (microcode) of Power machines.
PowerVM contains the Virtual I/O server, a virtual appliance providing acces to real hardware for virtual logical partitions which are designed to have no dedicated adapters attached, and  the Integrated Virtualization Manager (which you can't use if you have a HMC but must use if you have none) and which is kind of a combination of a virtual HMC and the Virtual I/O server.
This concept is thus quite different from VMWare.
