I was reading a solution and someone said you can't backup the free version of ESXi
so if there is a free version there must be a paid version

Yes, you can purchased licenses for VMware vSphere, VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi).

The basic license is called Essentials at approx $500.

Some options can backup....

It's only the license key applied to ESXi server, which changes it from Registered FREE, to Licensed.
