I can answer your soundcard question. Yes, it is possible to emulate a 
few different virtual cards that Windows can recognize on install. My 
Windows 2000 VM uses a HSE97 and it also works with a Soundblaster 16, 
both of which are configurable in the VBoxManage cli interface or in the 
real GUI under native Windows.

I believe the Right ctrl key is used to switch the keyboard between the 
host and the guest, although I changed mine as soon as i installed 

I don't have a huge amount of help to give on the VBoxManage CLI, as I 
have only cloned disks with it etc.
