My dilemma is this, I have been handed an ext USB hard drive with 2 vmware fusion images on it (52GB ea) and been asked to put those images on my ESXi 3.5 server. Will the converter even do that? I have not found one article on conversion from vmware fusion to ESXi and I assume that is for a reason. Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes you can,  You will need to download and install the VMWare converter.

Instill it on your guest OS and follow the conversion wizard.
