Microsoft's site says East Asian languages can only be installed in Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise.

In XP, they could be installed by Control Panel \ Regional and Language Options\ check the box for East Asian Languages.

Are there any options for installing them on Windows 7 Pro?  Third party installs?

Surprizingly you are correct. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/languages

There is a MUI pack that contains east asian and the site below says its for windows 7 pro. I havent tried it so as your own risk. I would do a complete disk image using Norton Ghost or Acronis Image before trying this.

syndr--You should be able to  install these languages to at least allow input in those languages.
Control Panel|Regional and Languages|Keyboards and Languages tab|Change Keyboards|General tab|Add.
