If you were running Ultimate with disk encryption turned on and lots of services, I could see that Starter might be faster -- simply because it wouldn't be running so many services. But, can think of no reason why Windows 7 Started would be noticeably faster on your machine than Windows 7 Pro.
Am I able to upgrade from Vista home premium to windows 7 starter?
If you're asking about an in-place upgrade where your settings, files, and apps are all preserved -- no. You would have to do a clean-install "upgrade" which will effectively start you over from scratch.
