Setup: I use to have a separate test box - now I'm using VirtualBox

I have about 10 external programs that I need to install and test

1) If I install 11.0 in vbox (minus the first level configuration, like
the sound card, printer) with nothing special, will it be the same as on
a separate box ?

There are always differences. For example, the video card. It will the
same or not depending on your programs.

2) Next to load the proper repositories and install the 10 external
programs and test.

3) How can I backup 11.0 (minus /home) and overlay onto 10.3 ? (Backup
and restore directories?)

Go back from 11.0 to 10.3? Huh?
Sorry, I don't understand this question.

No, I want to use the existing 10.3 system and just overlay it with the
vbox preinstalled and tested 11.0.
