You can use to_date for most of that, like:
development=> select to_date('01 02 2008', 'ID IW YYYY') AS start,
	to_date('07 02 2008', 'ID IW YYYY') AS end;
    start    |    end
  2008-01-07 | 2008-01-07
(1 row)

I'm a bit surprised that specifying the weekdays doesn't make any  
difference here, maybe it's my version?:

development=> select version();
  PostgreSQL 8.2.4 on i386-portbld-freebsd6.2, compiled by GCC cc  
(GCC) 3.4.6 [FreeBSD] 20060305
(1 row)

Anyway, you can solve that by adding an interval '6 days' to the end

If you can't see the forest for the trees,
cut the trees and you'll see there is no forest.
