is vox ac30cc versatile enough to get nirvana type overdrive with some help from pedals?

Yes. The Nirvana tone isn't exactly heavenly sounding. Any distortion pedal will do alongside a chorus.

Check for an Artec Soloist pedal. Quite cheap, true bypass and sounds awesome.

For a chorus, get the EHX Small Stone and you'll be set for many of those Cobain riffs.

you probably won't need any pedals to get the nirvana crunch sound...the ac30 has decent enough overdrive for that I think. you might decide to get an OD pedal though definitely look into a chorus pedal for the cleans...the small clone mentioned above is perfect.
the Vox AC30 has a hell of a lot more overdrive than you are thinking. Nirvana tone isn't even that heavy. If the AC30 can power Brian May's brand of "heavy" than it can pretty easily do nirvana.
