Yes you can check the xwiki logs file (xwiki.log). The reason for the  
error will be printed in there.

This file is present in each space you have if you've made  
modification to the space preferences through the admin.

No, you need to check the xwiki.log file to see what was wrong.

Yes. You're not supposed to make any change to vm files or any other  
file (css, js, jars, etc).

A good strategy re vm files is to use a skin inside the wiki and  
override the vm files there although that won't prevent you from  
having to merge with our changes if you want to benefit from them.

In general try to avoid making any change to vm files.
