The first step must be: Upgrade Vista to W7 then you may install Office 2013/365

More info: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee624351(v=office.15).aspx

Microsoft is not backward compatible. You may also forget DBF files support in Office 2013 and to run Office 2013 + Office 2010 in one OS installation is also impossible. Thus even MS Access 2010 application cannot run on computers having Office 2013 installed...

Of course, you may install Virtual PC on W7 machine and use Vista in this virtual environment.
