How apply some marker name to virtual?
Expand opportunities virtual.
Code:

Virtual. ;I want apply Word df mean float data
  dd -45.887
  load dword .value at $ - 4
end virtual
    

This good to tell macro what type have this virtual.
Code:
Virtual.df
End virtual
    


I found in fasm docs this
Code:
GDTR dp ?
    virtual at GDTR; how macro might chek name GDTR? 
        GDT_limit dw ?
        GDT_address dd ?
    end virtual

Nothing. The programmer adjusts the block described by virtual to the size of the dp type.
Code:
srtruc uint64 val& { . dq val
 label .low dword at .
 label .high dword at . + 4 }
struc gdt_ptr off, lim { label . pword
 .lim dw lim
 .off dd off }

What is the difference compared with equ ? In this macro.
I mean simple write .value EQU -45.887

EQU is just a textual replacement. It doesn't compute anything.
Code:
value equ -45.887
dd_value = dword value
dq_value = qword value
dt_value = tword value    
You don't need virtual for your example. Just use:
Code:
.value = dword -45.887
