We have VMware vCenter Server 5.1 installed. We want to setup a new infrastructure on VMware vCenter 6.0 in a different geographical location. We are planning to use VMware vSphere Replication to set replication between these two sites.

Please suggest whether it is possible or not to set replication between vCenter 5.1 and vCenter 6.0 using VMware vSphere Replication. If "Yes", then please suggest which VMware vSphere Repliation version is compatible in this scenario.

5.1 is now end of life, support has ended, it would be prudent to upgrade to a supported  version.

I'm afraid not, see below....

VMware vSphere Replication 6.11, 6.1 and 6.0 is ONLY compatible with vCenter Server 6.0, 6.0U1 and 6.0U2.

Just one version it integrates into vCenter Server which manages ESXi hosts.

Actually we wanted to migrate vms from vCenter 5.1 to 6.0. Is there any way to do that?

This link describes the migration of hosts and vms from 5.x to 6.x.

http://www.vmignite.com/2016/03/how-to-migrate-host-and-vms-from-vcenter-5-to-a-vcenter-6-server/

Can we use that considering we have Standard Switch configured in our existing vCenter 5.1.
