Open ssh would be installed in a VM, right?

Then you can install openssh as normal. It is available in .rpm for Centos.

You cannot install on Open SSH server on ESXi 5.0 U1.

ESXi has no service console, and is not Linux.

ESXi 5.0 does have remote SSH access, if that's what you need, remote access to the console via SSH.

See here to enable
