Yes, I know you can run sharepoint services on 7, not sure of SP2007.
The answer is no. Except if you plan on running it on applicable server platform as a VM.

Check out this msdn blog for running 2007 on 7. Its for the RC but I'm sure you can make it work.

The blog article on comment #37999578 is the only way to do it.  You can use SP2 instead of SP1.
