I have 4 hosts 2008 r2 enterprise servers that are running my virtual server environment.  
I have an requirement from citrix xenapp to have a scvmm 2012 server. If I build a virtual 2012 server which will be used for scvmm 2012, then can that manage my 2008 r2 hyperv clustered environment?

Yes, scvmm 2012 can manage Hyper-V 2008 R2 standalone servers and clusters as well
Only thing SCVMM 2012 is meant for 2012 hyper-v, hence scvmm 2012 have more feature functionalities than 2008 R2, those additional functionalities won't work for 2008 R2 hyper-V, however it can manage all aspects of 2008 R2 hyper-v hosts

No, it will allow, it is full flesh product and completely depends upon SQL
U need full SQL server instance

Mahesh, I will have to use this 2012 to be a virtual server, which is due to budget constraints, but I still will manage my hypverv cluster on my physical 2008 r2 server.
