Can SQL Backup 7 help with restoring a backup from SQL2012 to SQL2008/2005?

No. SQL Backup only takes the backup data as provided by SQL Server and compresses/encrypts it during a backup before writing it to disk. During a restore, SQL Backup uncompresses/decrypts the data and passes the backup data to SQL Server. Thus, all limitations on backwards compatibility remain.
