Before I courageously installed both simultaneously, I had so many questions. If I give python will it go to py3 when i want py2? pip/virtualenv will happen under py2/3?

Just blindly install both of them. Make sure you get the right type(x64/x32).
While/after installing make sure you add to the path to your environment variables.
[ENVIRONMENT]::SETENVIRONMENTVARIABLE("PATH", "$ENV:PATH;C:\PYTHONx", "USER")
Replace the x in the command above to set the path.
Then go to both the folders.
and rename pip to pip3.
If pip3 already exists delete the pip. This will make sure that just pip will run under python2. You can verify by:
In case you want to use pip with python3 then just use
You can similarly do the same to python file and others.
