No, a virtual package is something different (and unrelated to the problem
at hand).

What might be of use to you is a package called 'equivs'.  It's designed to
help make packages that don't contain anything, but instead just have
information (like a big pile of dependencies) in them to help pull in a
bunch of other packages.
