Virtual box on XenServer VM

I have a XenServer host test environment running version 5.6 FP1, inside it i have created a Windows Server 2003 64bit ENT Edition VM with 16VCPU/16GB RAM. On this VM i have installed latest version of Virtualbox, inside virtualbox i can add only 1cpu for each VM i create. But i would like to add more than 1VCPU to the VM i create, can i add more than one?

Also i would like to create a VM inside Virtualbox, in which i can install XenServer 6.x version. Can this be done?

I did try adding the following platform:nestedhvm=true and viridian=false (Apart from these two do i have to make any other changes?), but couldn't install 64bit Windows OS on Virtualbox nor able to increase the no of CPU(Please find the attached screenshot).

    Since your question is about XenServer specifically (the commercial Citrix product), I'd like to suggest that you consider using one of the following forum and support sites:

    These sites have a focus on the XenServer product itself (not the open source Xen hypervisor in general). They are likely to give you a much more specific answer than you are likely to get here.
