Upgrade Advisor for Older Versions of Windows

Is there going to be an "Upgrade Advisor" that will function with the older M/S Operating Systems such as Vista, XP, ME. 98?

As well as older CPUs (AMD 8650 (X3), AMD 4000 (X2))?

Nobody knows the answer to your question and will not know until at least 29th July when Window 10 is released.  At that stage, an upgrade advisor to run on Vista & XP may be made available or it may be some time later for all anybody knows.

However, the system requirements for Windows 10 are virtually the same as for Windows 8.1 so you can run the Windows 8 upgrade advisor on Vista & XP computers. 

System requirements - Microsoft Windows 8.1

Windows 8 Upgrade Advisor

Do note that any result that says "may be a problem" for any particular device or application means that Microsoft do not know if anybody makes compatible drivers for the device / compatible updates for the software so you would have to contact the maker to find out.

The Windows 8 upgrade advisor cannot even run on Win98 or WinMe so I think  that tells you the answer for those systems.
