virtualenv is included in Python 3 Standard Library as venv[*] module.
The name of executable is pyvenv, but it was deprecated recently,
although it's still there and usable:

  The pyvenv script has been deprecated as of Python 3.6 in favor of
  using python3 -m venv to help prevent any potential confusion as to
  which Python interpreter a virtual environment will be based on.

Regarding other packages you have listed, you'll need to rebuild them
using python3, I don't see any other way around it.
