I think they use these different codes to confuse people

To answer your question about the codes, the lowest flight cost you can buy if you want a reward flight in economy is M. The prices go up in group all the way to Y which is the most expensive. If you have one of these codes then you can upgrade to the next cabin using miles or make changes to your flight for a fee which I think is £100.
What you would need to do though, is look for fares in PE and see what dates they have available. The reward seats are there but you need to be completely flexible. If you want to go at a busy or popular time of the year, your chances of getting a reward flight is virtually zero.
Go into your Flying Club and then select Cabin Upgrades then check for PE dates making sure you select at the bottom to Spend Miles and write the dates available down.
If there is a date that is acceptable to you then go back to the calendar and look for an M code price, make a note of the price.
If you have free phone calls, then phone Virgin on 01293 562 345 and ask for the Red Flying Club. The operator will then put you through and you won't be paying for the call.
Explain what you want to do, give them the dates and say that you have just checked online and there is an M class available for £???? and you want to use miles to upgrade to PE and the dates you've given are available online.
You will have to pay a little more than the M class fare as you have to pay the taxes on a PE seat minus the taxes on the E seat.
Hope this explains it a bit more.
