virt-manager currently does not have support for adding
parallel devices to guests, though this is supported at
the libvirt level. So, using virsh, you can add a parallel
device to an existing VM. Check out 
http://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html#elementsConsole for
xml examples.

There will likely be a 'Add Character Device' wizard in
virt-manager down the line, no official timeline yet
