1. Nope (unless flying Vietnam Airlines business class, which includes business class access with the ticket)... as per the article: "Qantas Gold, Platinum, Platinum One and Chairman's Lounge frequent flyers prior to Qantas, Jetstar, Emirates, China Eastern or Oneworld flights, or when travelling...

These days, Virgin tends to announce lounge-related updates only when the change takes place rather than in advance, so I wouldn't expect to see anything from the airline until late October on this. (I assume you're talking about trans-Tasman here.)Having said that, now that Virgin Australia has ...

If the Qantas website isn't automatically suggesting it as a connection to where you want to go, try searching on other routes like Hong Kong to Brisbane, to Cairns, to Adelaide or even to Perth, which are all served by Oneworld partner Cathay Pacific (and Brisbane by Qantas, too).
