I currently do not have VLAN'ing setup in VMWare virtual infrastructure, although the physical switches maintain them.  Can I add 2 more VLAN's to the physical switch and utililize them in VMWare?  Also the physical switch is only layer 2, and uses a firewall in between, although I believe I can switch over to a layer 3 switch in between.

you will need to be able to trunk the switch ports to your host.  http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1266 .  There's also a vlan guide link at the bottom of that article that you should check out.
