is it possible to access the full library of titles of the Wii's Wii Shop channel via Wii U in Wii Mode?

ive been told thats how one can buy the WiiWare games, but wonder if that applies to VC stuff too...as some SNES games in particular i dont beleive are on Wii U E-shop yet but exist on Wii via Wii Shop Channel

if not ill have to do a system transfer which will be a pain in the butt as the Wii i have isnt actually mine but a friends...and id need his permission to do a Reformat so that it wouldnt copy over his profile/etc (provided it even does profile copying)

Yes, it is.
Also system transfer isn't very difficult, and only transfers games if I remember correctly.

Actually it transfers all channels, and game save data.

im more concerned if it transfers profile data..since the Wii is setup wiht my friends credentials/etc

mostly the reason i hope to avoid a transfer if i can...but if i cant buy stuff like Secret of Mana, Darius Twin and some of the other real gems of the SNES era id have to buy them on Wii then do a Transfer...but that may be problematic

i guess what i really want to ask is: if the Wii was registered under my friends name/email/Date of Birth/etc...if i did a transfer would my WiiU reflect that information?

The Wii menu acts exactly like a Wii. You can buy anything you can buy on a Wii.

As for what is/is not transferred:

yeah i found that link

but i guess the only question that leaves is what it counts as "wii shop channel account activity"

since i seem to recall one NEEDS an account to use Wii Shop...so if that is the case itd be my friends account...and thats what i wish to AVOID copying over

if that wont pose a problem then i can do a transfer

also id save a bit of money if i could just do a transfer...as the one WiiWare game i planned to get i DID buy on my friends Wii and got a couple of the DLC items so thatd save me around ~20 bucks worth of Wii Points..provided it either transfers the WiiWare game or at least lets me re-download it for free

Your friend should be aware that if you system transfer his Wii onto your Wii U, he loses everything from his Wii.
