What is the process needed to get the AWS KVM and ZEN drivers loaded in a VMWare Ubuntu 18.04 LTS System before we use the AWS migration tool to put in on an AWS Instance ?  I’m specifically needing what and how to preload the drtivers etc.

So you want to migrate an ec2 instance that is currently in aws to vmware? Or are you trying to migrate from vmware to aws? If you are migrating into aws, you don't need to install any drivers that I am aware of so I am not sure what you are asking.

To migrate from vmware and you use vcenter you can follow this guide. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/amp/latest/userguide/migrate-vms.html
Another option is to export the image and import it into aws. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/vm-import/latest/userguide/vmimport-image-import.html
