Well firmware of your host server, is based on the vendor make and model of server. So you'll have to tell us that, but usually you insert the CDROM/DVDROM into the Server, boot it from the media, and run the Firmware Update. - Yes this does involve shutting down ESXi and VMs.

Order of upgrade should be firmware, vcsa and then ESXi.

Upgrade vcsa
