I think my limousine, sometimes called a bus, has those. I live in the
"city" and haven't owned a car in 15+ years. Yet, sometimes I wish I knew
more about them than computers.

You may or may not have troubles running those on another machine. I don't
use VMware player or VMware server. I use VMware Workstation and it has a
nice cloning feature and it performs some "magic" if you tell it the clone
will be run on a different machine.
If you have issues, give a yell and I'll try to help. Otherwise, the VMware
forums are the place to go. Much more experienced folks than I over there.

Yes, that is true. I believe that is mentioned in the release notes. But,
I don't those things either. :-)

I would do exactly that. The nice thing about VMware Server is you can
start a VM and then logout of your host OS and the VM will continue to run
in the background.
Oh, I like repeating myself. It makes me feel as if I've said something
