Need to understand any impact on VM Environment like 3.5,4.1,5.x?

NONE, it's an attack against the Web Browser. As a Web browser is a client function, it's your computers which have and use a Web Browser which are at risk!

So your Windows 7 and Windows 8 Desktops.

Therefore - Disable SSLv3 in the Web Browser.

If you have a Domain using Group Policies would be a good method, otherwise manually, scripts, registries.

How do you currently manage your non domain computers, use the same procedure you would use to administer a security patch.

Yes, you can create a Group Policy for all your workstations, If you use Group Policy. It's a setting which you disable like any other Windows setting, for Internet Explorer.

we have less number of non domain ..but for dmz..is it required ?

Do you use browsers in the DMZ, just Disable SSL3 on the Browser on the computer. Access the risk in your DMZ!

and best practice we can follow for systems not in domain?

If you feel, you are at risk - Disable SSL3. (in the browser!)

how can we have patch to deploy using our patching mechanism like wsus etc

is there any patch available now from ms and firebox  ? or any other browser vendor ?

Patches will be relased over time, just Disable SSL3.
