The Configmgr 2012 Package Conversion Manager(PCM) allows for converting packages and programs into applications and deployment types in configmgr 2012. There is a migration feature which is released with the Configuration Manager 2012 that allows packages to be migrated from 2007 to 2012. Once you have migrated your package objects and installed PCM it is just a matter of analyzing your packages to determine their readiness state and then converting the packages with the appropriate readiness state to applications.

App-V Sequencer creates applications that can be run in a virtual environment. It monitors the installation and setup process for an application, and it records the information necessary for the application to run in a virtual environment.These applications does not interact with OS as they runs in virtual environment.
You can deploy the sequenced applications using SCCM 2012 to User based computers in more suitable way using Global conditions.
