If I am correct the creation of Vmkernel for Vmotion is mandatory, otherwise there will be no Vmotion.

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.
