Red Hat web site or the mirrors of them in Centos or Scientific or even Oracle linux have all the documentation one might need.

There is little difference to an admin between a VM and physical machine.

What patch do you wish to apply?

Do you purchase support for Red Hat products?

VMware can also be used to remediate Linux VMs. See VMware Update Manager. Remediation is the process in which Update Manager applies patches, extensions, and upgrades to ESX/ESXi hosts, virtual machines, or virtual appliances after a compliance scan is complete.
