Try the latest Ubuntu distro as VM. It has Magic, Ngspice, Xschem and KLayout. Then you just need to install Open PDKs. http://opencircuitdesign.com/open_pdks/install.html

If you know how to handle TCL scripts, you can add any shape to your layout with magic. There must be a translator somewhere... Ask @User

Whenever you use OL it uses docker by default. You can do 'make mount' to start it up. The container itself is efabless/openlane
