Are there tools that allow you to create a fully functional Windows PC in a MAC?  
What options are available to create a windows PC inside of a MAC?
Any downsides?

Does this involve the use of a hypervisor?

Hi

Yes it CAN but it will not work on certain hardware.
You could create a dual boot with Apple's bootcamp as Raheman descibes, you could also boot of an IOS DVD and install the full thing.

As a reference you find usefull information here.

You can use VMware Fusion to create a Windows 7 machine that runs simultaneously with the MAC.

I use VMware Workstation to run Windows 7 (and Vista, XP and so on) on my Windows 8.1 machine. Works just fine.
