Thank you for  your reply.
2 vCPU and 1 Core seems fine.
What that "1Core" mean? Do you think the PC has only 1 Core?

Your i7 has more than 1 core.

It has 2 Cores and 4 Threads.

Do you require more performance in the VM ?

If you truly want to max out all the CPU resources, although maybe not a good idea, then just select 4 vCPU or 8 vCPU

If one guest is using two cores, how many guest does the host PC can support? two or more than that?

Host PC is using all Cores.

The VMware Workstation hypervisors, is then allocating 2 vCPU (2 Cores from the Host).

Want to use them all then select 8 vCPU

If you want your VM guest to have max resources, the limited factor in the underlying hardware. For example lets say your workstation had two physical CPU each 8 cores each. This would mean you could potentially allocate 16 vcpus to the VM, although workstation might have some vCPU limits as compared to ESXi Enterprise
