version 9.0 - ESXi 5.1
version 10 - ESXi 5.5

either connect to ESXi/vCenter Server and select VM, Upgrade Virtual Hardware, or via Web Client, and complete Upgrade Virtual Hardware.

Are you talking about virtual machine hardware?

Here's the compatibility matrix:  http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2007240

To upgrade a VM:  Shut down the VM->right-click the VM->Upgrade Virtual Hardware.
