once setup for 2x local hosts, does it copy the files from datastore to datastore (host to host) and create the VM in an offline state ready to be powere on manually?  Or does it simply copy the VM files to the datastore and i need to attach the files manually then power on?

They are replicated over in a poweroff state, should not have to attach them.  You can setup failover so lets say a VM goes down, it can automatically power on the replica to reduce downtime (with high availability of course).

Failover is Enacated from within Veeam Wizard. The best way, is to setup a replicate job, and then use Veeam Job.

They do have a highly detailed document on the website for replication and the ways it can be setup\done.  I usually just contact their support with help setting up the jobs and what my overall goal is.  I really do like their support and they will answer all of your questions.

They are created in a 'ready to be powered on' state. BUT...it is highly recommended to power on and work with the replica's with the Veeam Admin Console. This way you can "failover" to the replica, "revert" back to the orig VM, etc. See the Guide starting on pg. 192:

is it a continuous 'real time' replication or effectively a snapshot/backup?

that depends on how you configure.

you probably need to login to Veeam for access to link.

any backup has to be completed using the storage api, so snapshots will be used.

Yes...it does. :) You need to create an account just like at VMware to access the resources. I've made my complaint to Veeam about that. Shouldn't need an acct to solely access Guides IMO.

To answer your 'real-time repl' question....it depends. You can replicate as often or as minimal as you like based off the scheduling. One of the options in the Schedule is "continuous". If that's what you wanna do, you have that ability in the replication job schedule.
