No, unfortunately not. You would have to resort to kvm to install
an instance of Solaris in a kernel-based virtual machine.

Yes, Debian on sparc64 has full support for Xorg. Basically all display
hardware supported by the current release of Xorg should work. There
might be some issues with Sun-specific display adapters as someone
else previously reported on this list, but in such cases, you
could just install a known-working standard PC graphics card
as a work-around (PCI, AGP or PCI Express).
