/proc/cpuinfo is not a real file, it's a file generated by the kernel based on the features of your CPU. It can not be edited, as editing a file cannot possibly alter the features of the CPU.

If your CPU doesn't support hardware virtualization, you simply won't be able to use KVM.

Have you enabled VT-x in bios?

I'd guess your cpu doesn't support VM as well.

You can use Qemu which is either qemu directly or use KVM in an emulated which again is qemu. You can also use other vm's that run in emulated modes.
