I am on Windows 10 (Host), AMD FX-8350. I need Hyper-V enabled to use WSL and an Android Emulator.
My understanding is, this won't work with virtualbox, but with vmware shouldn't be an issue anymore: https://blogs.vmware.com/workstation/2020/05/vmware-workstation-now-supports-hyper-v-mode.html

I thought I'd go with High Sierra, as it has lower system requirements, so my hope was it would perform a bit better (as my machine is not the fastest, plus we can't use virtualization).

I tried this vmdk and iso:

I also installed the unlocker.
Unfortunately, no matter if I boot from the iso or the vmdk I get "Operating System not found".
Where could I find a working vmdk or iso? Or ist the problem in my config?

With VMWare you'll need to use a modified kernel. VirtualBox however can spoof the CPUID to an Intel CPU.

It's an issue with the HV from what I can tell. Fix is to run
Code:
bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

If you've got that fixed you'll need to run these commands to allow macOS to boot "natively" within VBox on AMD,

Code:
cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" 
VBoxManage modifyvm "Monterey" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 00100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff 
VBoxManage setextradata "Monterey" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMacPro1,1"
VBoxManage setextradata "Monterey" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" 
VBoxManage setextradata "Monterey" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94"
VBoxManage setextradata "Monterey" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" 
VBoxManage setextradata "Monterey" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1
VBoxManage modifyvm "Monterey" --cpu-profile "Intel Core i7-6700K"
VBoxManage setextradata "Monterey" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1920x922
