Anyone has any capacity management guide.  Ideally it touches
topics like

a) at what utilization of a datastore, we need to consider increasing
    the datastore's capacity
b) when to increase vCPU, disk & RAM for a VM
c) how do we chart / track the various resource utilizations
d) when's a cluster & ESXi host's total CPU & RAM needs to be increased
e) how would we know increasing vCPU & RAM will improve a VM's
    performance

a) when the datastore get's less than 20% of the total storage, but is dependant upon number of VMs on the datastore, and swap file location, and snapshots.

b) Check Performance and Statics of the VM, check performance charts or use VMware vCenter Operations Manager.

HOW TO:  Performance Monitor vSphere 4.x or 5.0

c) VMware vCenter Operations Manager and vCenter Server

d) Using reporting guides and What-If reports in VMware vCenter Operations Manager.

e) Test new changes.

One last query:
We have Sitescope that's run from vCenter.  Can point me to
link(s)/URL that give instructions/guides on how to extract
& query the utilization/capacity reports?

I'm afraid that's a new question, and off topic here.
