    I don't think this is possible. Searched for it, and the best thing you get are "Windows Phone" launchers for Android.

    If you want you can get a Nokia Lumia 521/520 it's very cheap and certainly most try Wp8 go for the Lumia 520/521 :-)

    Nope. First of all, your device incorporates a WP7 era SoC (as used by the Lumia 510 and 610). WP8 isn't designed to run on WP7 era hardware. Even if you could get WP8 to run on your device, you wouldn't be able to operate it properly, as your device lacks the necessary hardware buttons (back, home and search).

    If you want to try out WP8, I think the recommendation to get a cheap low-end Lumia 520 is a good one. However, even an old WP7 device is superior to the V2.3.6 Samsung Ace Plus. That might be an even cheaper way to test WP, if you are fine with testing WP7 instead of WP8. You might find that to be an interesting comparison, as any WP7 device and your Samsung Ace Plus are based on the same hardware.
