Yes, you are on the right track. The easier method is to run a virtual application that is suported on your Mac so that you can run Windows as a guest VM. this will allow you to run both operating systems at the same time if that is your wish and assuming you have enough resources on the host computer.

As far as I know, Bootcamp requires you to have to restart. I use Parallels Desktop and I don't. I believe if you use VMWare Fusion you don't have to either.
