Is there a way to just copy the VMWare VMs from the live machine and store them as backup? For example, I know there is a p2v Microsoft tool that mirrors a physical server. Can I do the same for VMs?

Yes, in vSphere its called a clone.  Its the best backup since you can just start it if the original goes bad.

your best solution will be to use veeam backup for vmware - free edition. you can backup the entire vm's [please check the veeam free edition limitations on the number or vm's you can backup) to alternate locations.
