    1- I'm pretty sure the vWii is independent of the actual wii u. it's kind of like having an emulator on your console. So the wii u update will not affect it only updates to the actual vWii.
    2- There are vWii hacking methods that do require you to use a game disc, like the lego indiana jones one. Another alternative i believe should work is called letterbomb which only requires you to have an sd card and your vWii on ver4.3
    3- Messing around with your nand can cause a brick, this forum contains all that you need to know https://gbatemp.net/threads/basic-dos-and-do-nots-of-vwii-modding.339337/ :P
    4- If you do manage to brick vwii your wii u should be fine
    5- one SD is enough really
    6- not that i know of
    7- You can play wii backups with this but not all of them will work

    I haven't hacked vWii yet but i've read into it quite a bit and have prior experience from hacking my real wii

    letterbomb is for Wii only not vWii.
    Read the stickies, there is no disk-less hack as of yet.
    All you need is to play a exploitable game and make a save. How long you have to play? That depends on the game.
    You will need an SD card, not SDHC
    IF you mess up the vWii ios, you will not be able to update the sytem - i.e newer WiiU games may not work

    Anyway, READ THE STICKIES.

    lol, I don't even own a WiiU
    some games will create a save before it even starts so that is in no time at all.
    but can't you just spare an hour and enjoy a game? rushing through a softmod is risky business.
