HI,

As your question is not fully clear, I assume that you need to know if Sharepoint 2013 foundation servers can be installed in VMs hosted on a Windows Server 2008 R2 HyperV.

If so, its very well supported. You may even think of upgrading the HyperV server to Windows Server 2012 R2 for improved perfomance and lot many new features.

Here is the Microsoft Technet article regarding virtualization requirement for SharePoint 2013.

Please refer the below page on the Hardware and OS requirement for Sharepoint 2013.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

Good luck !

SQL on one, front end (IIS) and applications on the other.

If you can, then I would strongly recommend you try to split your physical box further into three VMS, and use one for SQL, one applications and the last for applicaitons.  This is the classic Sharepoint topology and will make it much easier to expand later if required.  I generally only use the two farm topology on dev farms.

Here is the best practise:
