OK, so the goal is to work with FCP7 files. I'm still working with my original 2010 files (FCS3 on a 2010 13" originally w/10.6) on 10.8.5 Mt. Lion . So be aware, you can move forward that far with no risk to access. I was able to downgrade from trying Mavericks (CS5.5 crash issues), and that's where I want to stay for now. Best of old and new.
The issue may be if your new machine (you don't mention any specific models…) came with 10.9 Mavericks as original equipment. I have the same issue with a new 2014 model (11,3) running Yosemite ("...a world of hurt." as Jobs would say). Older software may not have the drivers to run the newer hardware, and Apple NEVER upgrades that, only security patches. So I don't know if you will ever get Snow Leopard on your new machine, but if it came with at least Mt. Lion (10.8.x), you should be able to downgrade back. Downgrading before (your machine was produced), may not ever be possible with Apple. Hope some of this is helpful...
