I think you'd need someone to create the image in VMWare Fusion then give it to you to run in Player.

Or workstation, or from a vSphere environment. You might also be able to download a qcow2 image and convert it to a vmdk via qemu-img utility, but I haven't tested that. Your best bet would be to get a base VM of Ubuntu or Redhat and setup devstack from there.

Also, unless you plan on running KVM/Qemu or Xen on the same VM as all of your controller services etc, you'll need another physical or virtual hypervisor to use as your compute node. I'm not positive if VM player supports nested virtualization.
