Did you consider using "Gnome Boxes" which may already be installed on your system?

Or perhaps the VirtualBox package from rpmfusion-free.

Virtual box Kernel module is not part of Fedora you must download and install from Oracle. Please keep in mind that Virtualbox is free of charge but not Free software, therefore is not include on Fedora you can use virtmanager and kvm hypervisor.
