I can't find any mention of P2V in searching this site. Is there any plan for implementing this? Currently looking for Windows P2V. Thanks.

I think this is probably more in the realm of the virtualisation technology that you want to use with Openstack and is out of scope for Openstack project itself.

For most virtualisation software there are tools available: E.g. for KVM there is http://libguestfs.org/virt-v2v/ (never used it) I know Vmware has its own tools and I guess Xen and HyperV will also have something for this.

Yes. You can also find that in SCVMM (System Center Virtual Machine Manager) incase of Hyper V to convert storage of Physical to Virtual and vice versa.
