I have a host machine with 4 GB RAM and Win XP Pro 32 bit.Now my host machine is using approximately 1.5 GB of RAM and at max it can use 3.25 GB (approx) RAM. SO I have around 0.75 GB (approx) RAM left unused. I am creating a virtual machine with VMware Player 5.0 for windows 8 32 bit. Can I allocate 2.5 GB RAM to this virtual machine? I am wondering if my virtual machine can use the wasted RAM.

You can try a tool named Gavotte Ramdisk to creates a virtual hard drive in the extra RAM memory and utilize unused RAM of your machine. Personally, I've found it very useful.

No. It can't be accessed because it can't be mapped. You need to use a 64-bit host OS.
