would morgoth tried attack valinor,if he had won war of Wrath?
did valar had any back up plan if they had lost and forced to retreat?

Agreed with Miguel, Eru would have stopped him (can't let the drama King Melkor win).

There is a point about the title of volume 10 of the History of Middle-earth, “Morgoth’s Ring”: “all of Arda was Morgoth’s Ring” (compared to that diddly piece of jewelry of Sauron’s). However much power Morgoth may natively have had, it was definitely finite. And as he was basically trying to counter the efforts of a vast majority of the Ainur in the Ainulindalë, he was certainly megalomaniac in even trying. Sowhere in HoMe, there is a statement (perhaps isolated?) that by the end of the First Age, Morgoth had (necessarily) so dissipated his native power that Sauron was mightier than he was. I mean, the Valar aren’t totally stupid. They “only” sent a Maia, Eonwë, herald of Manwë, to lead the forces in the War of Wrath (though I have occasionally groused about the Valar’s “wimpiness” elsewhere – Tulkas would have made a very short job of Morgoth, as he had already been able to do when the Valar took Morgoth prisoner when they became aware that the Elves were about to awaken). No chance of Morgoth ever winning. Just think of what happened when some “ants” landed in Valinor in the host of Ar-Pharazôn in 3319 Second Age.
