Download  vCenter iso and that will have vCenter, Update Manager, Single Sign On, etc..

Install vCenter, SSO, and Infrastructure service  (if on a windows machine) and then install update manager

I have a vCenter appliance(OVF template) without go through the vCenter installatoin. If I download the vCenter iso, does it work ?

Is there any option to patch the VM without the vCenter Update Manager ?

Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

You will need to install on a windows machine and register the plug-in with vCenter.

Here's a KB on what's bundled with appliance and what's not

It will install a SQL Express instance for you if you like, it's the easiest way to go.  That's the ISO you need.
