When setting up the VM use the Configuration -- here's an example from VMWARE -- processors can be set from 1 - 4 I think.
In general though there isn't much advantage in setting a VM to use more than one processor - at least if it's a "Home user" type VM.
Depends on what you want the VM to do -- setting the number of processors to > 1 merely reduces the available resources the HOST has for very little gain.
Running specialized VM's which have a load of concurrent users is a different issue - I'm assuming here that you are running a VM on a laptop / desktop machine and not setting up an Enterprise type "VDI -- Virtual Desktop Infrastructure).
The BEST performance you can get for a VM will be if the VM is on an SSD - this will really speed up response time even on older systems.
