Can developers make Wii games meant to be viewed in HD and use Wii peripherals and play on the Wii U (but not use Wii U peripherals)?

Or do all Wii games have to be in SD?

It doesn't work that way. A Wii game is a Wii game. A Wii U game is a Wii U game. Wii games don't support HD resolutions, but Wii U games do. Simple and clean.

The Wii U is compatible with every single Wii peripheral anyway, so they just make a Wii U game that uses Wii controllers.

Without modified hardware, no. The Wii hardware itself has a frame buffer too small for HD image output.

If the Wii U has modifications to its backwards compatibility that allow it to take advantage of a larger frame buffer, then yes, it technically would be possible. I highly doubt this is the case, though.
