Do you remember where you found information saying that VCL can auto create 
VMs?  It does not currently do that.  If there is documentation somewhere 
stating that, it needs to be corrected.

To use VMs with VCL, you need to first add VM host computers using Manage 
Computers->Edit Computer Information->Add.  Then, you need to add VMs using 
the same mechanism.  Finally, you need to go to Virtual Hosts and add the VMs 
to the VM hosts.  Currently, VCL does not manage placement of VMs on VM hosts 
automatically.  That is something we will add in a future release.

We definitely need to work on documentation in lots of areas.  There is some 
documentation on using VCL.  The best place to look is to just browse the list 
of pages in the wiki:
