Yes, it's possible to manage many hosts using a single vCenter Server, across multiple sites, you just need to ensure you have good communication between Host and vCenter, and certain firewall ports are open, if you use firewalls.

BUT, you mention, that Site B has VMware vSphere Essentials, this cannot be managed by another vCenter Server. Only the vCenter Server edition that comes with Essentials.

So, Site A and Site C (if this is vSphere Standard).
