If I am correct the creation of Vmkernel for Vmotion is mandatory, otherwise there will be no Vmotion.
Let's say ESX host has one Physical Nic..
Can I create Vmkernel port group for Vmotion as well as VM Port Group and make them all go through that vNic ?

Thank you

To be able to vMotion virtual machines, the vMotion traffic should be enable in one of your VMkernel interfaces... this interface can be a dedicated VMkernel just for vMotion traffic or you can use your existing management VMkernel interface, just thick the vMotion traffic option, but a dedicated VMkernel interface is always recommended.

Yes, you can. A single physical NIC can be used to allow traffic from multiple purposes (virtual machines, management, vMotion, Fault Tolerance, NFS), but it is always recommend isolate these traffic using VLANs.
