1. Yes, you can install vCenter appliance on local storage.You will be able to use Storage vMotion in the Evaluation period, if you do not apply ESXi host licenses.

2. You have the choice of using the vCenter appliance or vCenter Server installed on Windows, select which operating system your organization is most familiar, e.g. if you are familiar with Windows, install vCenter Server on Windows, if you are familiar with managing and support Linux, use Appliance.

3. Okay.
