You cannot activate an Iphone on Virgin, the only Non-Virgin phone you can activate is the Sprint Optimus S but you can put an Iphone on VM, it's been done using the previously mentioned methods. My understanding is that it's actually easier on an Iphone than many other phones to get calls ans sms, data is a bit trickier and you have almost zero chance of getting MMS to work. You might by using an aftermarket sms program like Go SMS for Iphone, however it's a very slim chance.
Beware of people claiming it is easily done, there are videos of people on Youtube showing off that they did it, but if you watch, most of the time, they can't get data working properly. Almost everyone underestimates the amount of work involved in doing these types of swaps.
As yourself, do you really want to spend however much on the phone and 20+ hours trying to make an Iphone partially work(?), because really, that is about what you can expect.
