So in Am, the only chords that can have a V(7) or viio(7) applied to them are:
C (G7 or Bo7)
Dm (A7 or C#o7)
E (B7 or D#o7)
F (C7 or Eo7)
And of course the A chord has it's own dominants - E7 or G#o7, but they're the "primary" dominants and already part of the key.
Now, you can't have a "V/viio" or a "viio/viio" because viio can't be a tonic.
But, if you use the natural "bVII" - that would be G Major in the key of Am, you could in fact tonicize that with D7 or F#o7.
There is a correlation between the chords in the key and what we call "Closely Related Keys" (keys that differ from the original by no more than one accidental in the key signature) but with tonicization it's really about the chord simply being in the key to begin with. There's probably a favoring of V, and IV as maybe the two most tonicized chords, but really any of them (as long as they're not diminished) are commonly tonicized.
I have returned to this thread again, and have read your response to my question. Once again, I am finding it incredibly helpful and would like to thank you for generously taking the time. I'll continue on in the other analysis threads.
All the best to you!
